I'm confident in the guy and that won't change if we have a first round exit.
Pretty much bang on. People forget when they criticize the guy that he is a 6 year NHL veteran now who has had to spend his developmental years not playing in the AHL or Europe or Junior somewhere. He did it playing in the toughest market for a goaltender to play on the entire planet. He had to grow up before our eyes and because of that we have been spoiled with early flashes of his potential.

Consistency is usually the biggest problem that young players face, and these days Price is generally regarded as one of the most consistent goalies in the entire league. His time is coming and he will reward the team and fans patience with him.
