A 5 game slump can muddy the stats, but that being said Price does have to be better.
So the implied message in both your posts is that Price=Reimer.

Blaming solely the Habs defense is as ridiculous as blaming solely Price. It has been a team effort.

But posters coming on the forum and still insisting that Price is great or elite is all the more ridiculous. Over his career Price has shown himself to be a good goaltender. He has still not shown himself to be either great or elite.

It's a little frightening that Price has similar stats to Reimer considering that most people don't see him as elite and until a few weeks ago many experts had trouble seeing him as #1 goaltender.
