The mistake was made in 2005 when Price was chosen ahead of Rask and Quick, both of whom are undeniably better. That can't be undone.

But cutting losses and getting back in the game with a Backstrom or Luongo might be a zero sum game too. The team needs to get better in goal, not just change goalies.
Agreed. We can debate how picking Kopitar or Quick or Rask would have been a better idea ..it doesn't matter now.

The problem today is that management is hanging on to Price and putting all the eggs in 1 basket, doesn't even have any youth goalie product in the system.

Nobody is advocating to go with Budaj as #1 next year. We need to get better in goal, with or without Carey, we need to get better performances from our goalies.
