You put Price and Hiller on a same level, he's basically a back up now. I wouldnt even trade Budes for him if they had the same salary. Anyway, you bring a good conclusion, just not great arguments.
I agree some of the time you can't base their perfromance on stats, but this year, it's a very indocator for Rinne. He has been very hot and cold this year, ask some Preds fans. I won't argue about last year, he was awesome, ....this year not so much. He was having some problems in the KHL during the lockout as well. He's been good (like Price) but not great. He's been pulled 5 times this year.
FYI, i think my arguments are great because people keep on bringing up Price's salary. When you look at the other goalies with that salary, he's doing fine. Of course, you can always just ignore salary and choose which ever goalie is playing great any given year and say "see, we could have him instead and he's only being paid 2 million"
