And what's particularly stupid about that line of thinking is that once we have a real contender.. it will be the worse time to realize that our goaltender can't cut it in pressure situation.

I just don't get where the poster was coming from with that type of reasoning.

That said, I'm not for trading Price this summer. Not unless a really amazing offer presents itself and we have a good solution for his replacement... which would be a lot of work and uncertainty. No, Price will be the guy next season. We'll see what he can do. He gets another chance...
I dont know what to tell you I dont have any issues with your post I know Price let is softies this season but what Goalie doesnt, I also dont agree with this board that pretty much every goal that goes in on him especially the last 15 games of the season is a softie. Some of those goals were simply well placed shots I dont understand how this board expects shutouts.

Game 4 about 70% of ppl here say Price dropped the ball. I disagree completely he played amazing two goals that shouldnt have gone in. 1st kick in second a pathetic defensive display in front of the net ( Prust or MT blame one of them)

Finally after the Toronto game 3 goals on 4 shots. (All on price this game) The team stopped playing I cant even explain the difference in play it was a different team so his save percentage imploded I honestly did not expect it to stay at 914 after that terrible team took the ice for 2 weeks.

I liked his play before that he was being considered a vezina finalist by a lot of people and lost it as he should have after the last two weeks played by a completely different team I am not excluding him from this but he is not the reason the team played like crap.
