I know I keep signing that song, but in the meantime, Boston has Rask....Khudobin....Svedberg......Subban. Anaheim has Fasth, Hiller, Gibson and Andersen. We are such in great shape that we can't let Robert Mayer go....

Price was told he was worth that money. He was told when he was picked #5. Was told when we traded Huet for a pick. Was told when we traded THE fan favorite away...He was continously told....well he believed it.
I recall making a very similar post about the time Price was in contract negotiations, I might have used the term "painted into a corner" and it was not popular here.

In all my years of watching the Habs they have always had depth and quality at the goaltending position. Now, it's questionable if the team has either and the deterioriation started with what I can only guess was Gainey's misread of a brief period which Glen Healy called "6 absolutely great months in junior hockey".
