If you disagree, name me one. And keep in mind how often the defence on this team is beat to the inside.
Find me a goalie that wins consistently on a team where he is faced with quality scoring chances on a regular basis.
We all saw what happens when an inferior goalie plays behind this godawful defence...Budaj in game 5. If it wasn't Price back there we'd be blown out every game.
If you have Boullion in your top 4 you are dead before you start. Especially when your other D are Diaz, Gorges, and a Markov than has no speed left at all.
Those quality scoring chances look like that because they're always in the back of the net.
Francois Allaire said it better, the other team doesn't always have to fight to get their goals, they come easy. Look at how hard we had to battle to get our goal against Ottawa. All Ottawa had to do is to get themselve 5 good scoring chances and they kney they would have at least 2 goals.
