Of course there's other ways to look at it. He's been solid almost all year long. He's had some bad games that have inflated that number and now he's going through the worst stretch of his career. That doesn't make him a bad goalie, it makes him like every other goalie in the league... a guy who has ups and downs.

Why should we stop saying this when it's clearly true? We've seen guys with names like CareyCosts come out even when he was playing well. We've seen guys devote pretty much all their posts to throwing pot shots at the guy no matter how he's playing.

I'm not sure what else we're supposed to call these guys when they clearly hate our goalie.
Carey Price is not in the top 5 in save %:

2012-2013 Price 33rd in Save %, 7th in Wins, 29th in GAA
2011-2012 Price 20th in Save %, 21st in Wins, 18th in GAA
2010-2011 Price 7th in Save %, 1st in Wins, 10th in GAA
2009-2010 Price 21st in Save %, 37th in Wins, 31st in GAA
2008-2009 Price 31st in Save %, 24th in Wins, 31st in GAA
