Yet, he's build a reputation throughout the league that he's proven enough to be considered one of the best in the NHL.
I believe that's where the comments come from. Price has a reputation (maybe unwarranted according to some), and that's why people say he was in Vezina talks despite not really showing much this year.
Because the ''best goalie in the league'' has one Vezina and nothing else. The second best has nothing and missed the playoffs... The others are interchangable year in and year out. (See Quick, Bobrovski, Luongo, Schneider, Price, Lehtonen.)
Goes to show that goaltending is close. You get yourself a starter and you ride him until he can't play anymore.
