Price was the best player 2 years ago, by far. He had an elite season. The team sucked and didn't deserve to make the playoffs. Price was dominant that year. He had to win games with 1 goal leads 2-1 and 3-2 all season where we would go in complete passive defense mode in the 3rd and the other team would get a million chances/shots. He was not allowing softies and was making at least 1-2 big saves every game. I ate a lot of crow that season.

Last year ? I'm gonna have to disagree. Pacioretty, Cole and Subban all had superior seasons to Price. How many wasted leads in the third ? Was that all Price ? No. But elite goalies will steal some of those. And even if I were to agree, the best I could say was that he was the least bad of all the bads. We finished 15th, there was nothing redeeming about that season.

Still Price has been the best player on the team once.

But I'd say Subban has been the best twice now. Last year and this year.
