What tells you he'll be the best in the NHL?? How many goalies were the best in the juniors but sucked in the pro's? There's a reason why Slade wasn't drafted despite having quality numbers. Nobody has signed him yet...it's because he's small and has attitude problems, scouts don't think his success will be repeated in the pro's. Tri City seems to finally have a competitive team and Carey Price is finally having good numbers. I'd like to see his numbers if he was with a team like Everett. Don't you get it? The stats of players will always be misleading/inflated if they play for a good team....Schremp won't get 150 points in the AHL...he has troubles averaging a point per game.
Scouts saw that Price is quick and agile and has a good glove and size. They think he'll do good in the pro's if he reaches his potential and he outplayed both Huet and Abby in pre-season games, ask any habs fan.
