Adjusts to goalie's style, likes his goalie's to be aggressive and rely on their instincts regardless of their technique level. Is very close to his Gs but seems to be able to provide tough love if necessary...

Sounds like music to my ears...I had recently given up on Price but will give it one last shot.

Carey, in his rookie year, was a big, stand up goalie that moved a lot around his crease. Melanson "improved" his technique and Carey became a goalie that was obsessive in making the puck hit him (vs go with instincts sometimes)...and also became very small in his net because of his new habit to drop to his knees quickly. His last coach was a nice guy that was paid to be his friend, and Carey's developed weaknesses with the Habs just bloomed...

So, OK, I will be a fanboy and hope one more time, knowing that if this one fails we will be screwed for a very long time because Carey, with his future Hall-of-Famer level contract, will be non-tradable.
