One day, people will make me understand that double standards....Halak has no merit for what he has done...but Price isn't at fault for not having what Halak has had....
There is not a large gap in goaltending today as it was decades ago. Top goaltenders (stats wise) can change year from year. Obviously the better the team in front of the goalie helps a lot. I want the Habs to get better overall. No goalies should get discredited for the team in front of him as he still has to stop the puck. I preferably want to see our goalies have the easiest time due to the strength of the team in front of him. I want to see the Habs have the best team, not forward, defence, or goalie.

Halak's a great goalie, though he has had injury troubles. That article may be blown out of proportion but it doesn't paint him as a good teammate. They're a very good team playing the defending champs. The players and coaches didn't need that distraction.
