I would agree.

I'm not upset about price, and, in fact, I like price. I'm upset about the pedestal and the 'hater' comments. Price, right now, is around top 10, maybe. and again, quick judging my criticality when I root for this team; however, price was given every opportunity to be where he is, that's fine, but it's how it happened.

I'd put him in that group without question. Every one of them has had off performances once in a while, and all of them are at a point in their career where consistency should be at its peak, since they are in their prime. There's no goaltender that goes out there and shuts the door night in, night out. And all of those players depend largely on their team to play well enough for them to win consistently.
to each their own.

absolutely.

price is good; however, he's not top 5 and if he was thread titles: price doesn't steal wins, wouldn't exist because this play would be a norm. watch other teams, and see price is not different than most middle of the pack goalies this year. he just isn't.
