I don't believe that there are any better options for this team out there. We have a good goalie. Any one who doubts this is an idiot and should not have their opinion taken seriously. We let Price go through the ups and downs of the seasons, the play-offs and when he makes his statement, we will be a better team for it. We're not going to get fair value in a trade, we're going to hurt ourselves more than anything trying to replace him and we have nothing in the system to push him or succeed him.
Can't believe that I missed this post. Well written, logical and unbiased.
Well done. I completely agree with this position.
