Typically, goalies are overly criticized for losses and overly lauded for wins depending on how good the team is in front of them. Price, nor Budjai should not carry the entire responsibility for the Habs 3 game losing streak where they gave up 5, 7 and 6 goals. However, I am often critical of Price because he goes down way too early at times and gives away the top part of the net. Its not just him as this is the style of many goalies in the NHL these days. I do not like this style. Perhaps the worst for this is James Reimer of the Leafs. The guy is 6-4 and goes down way too early and gives away the top of the net. When Price is playing well, he stays in the athletic position for a split second longer and reacts to the shot.
