A very solid #1, but will definitely let in softies. You can build a team around him, but he's not going to carry your team for long periods of time either.
I don't want to talk against Price too much because I love having him, but these type of posts are what boggles my mind.
.926 SV% to .908 SV%.
One is elite, one is average. (SV%'s not the goalies in question).
Lundqvist (along with Nash, Stepan, and maybe a couple defenseman) are the reason the Rangers are even in a playoff spot. The same can't be said for Price (but we haven't needed him to be either).
Price has been dreadful when shorthanded this season. In fact, before the Toronto and Philly games his ES S% was close to 93% which is pretty good (.928). Right now, his even-strength S% is BETTER than it was last season (.921 vs .918 last year). His SH S%? Worst among full-time starters. Something's gotta give. Whether it's his puck tracking or the team as a unit, it's been dreadful.
