Then Price should have a top 10 GAA, but he doesn't have that either. He needs to play BETTER. Lets not look at the stats for a second. His lateral movement is all over the place. He stays on his knees way too much. He doesn't track the puck. He doesn't seem to be able to have a short memory either. Of course, there are a lot of things he does very well too. If he was a middle of the road goalie and expectations reflected that then there would be no issue. The problem is Price was a blue chip prospect that at this point has not lived up to his hype or contract. I expect him to bounce back and all this talk will be forgotten.
