Fast forward to 2013 is it not too much to expect that Price is now the guy who provides that performance when needed. He has the experience of someone beyond his years, he has the salary/respect, the confidence of the organization, nobody challenging his job. Can I now expect Excellence? I think it's reasonable to ask this now.
You are correct. Thomas was spectacular that season and he has a Cup to show for it.

Price has the tools to rise to the same excellence. His biggest competition in round one will not be the Senators. It will be himself and his belief in himself. A confident Carey Price is damned near unbeatable.
