Most people are polarized, meaning they'll either blame Price regardless of what he does while others will praise/save him no matter what.

I'm calling it as I see it. Elias' goal, while a breakaway, illustrates exactly what I'm referring to, which is a player in front of him who takes a straight shot without any dangles or moves and gets beaten by it. It doesn't matter if it's a breakaway, or a player standing still in the faceoff circle. He gets beaten *so* often and it's been happening during the entire season. In fact, I mentioned it to a couple of buddies of mine a month into the season.

It's easy to notice, but if people have their "Price can do no wrong" glasses on, it's next to impossible to see how weak he is one-on-one.
