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.
Price does need to be better no question about that. But I'm not sure you can really say he hasn't lived up to his blue chip status or contract. He's considered by many to be the front runner for Team Canada. That's pretty bluechip. And I don't know many teams that would not have signed Price to that contract. It sucks that we have to spend so much on a goalie, because you can find lots of great deals in the short/medium term but that's what a goalie of his calibre costs long term.
