My point is just that often times someone labeled a playoff choker goes on to win it all and now they are suddenly playoff warriors. This is not just about Price/Goalies.

There's so much luck involved in an incredible playoff run that I have a hard time attributing it to anything more than chance. Even Roy who many consider one of the most clutch goalies of all time had plenty of playoffs where he was average or worse. Given time I think Price will get one of those playoffs.
