People keep knocking on Price. No matter how good your goalie is, if the defense in front of you sucks, the goalie's going to look bad a lot. A lot of goals are going to look soft this way as well. Also, none of that goalie stealing a game crap, those are extremely difficult to pull off, even more so when again, the D sucks.

I don't blame him for losing confidence when the defense in front of you isn't something you can rely on. Just look at the defensive coverage of our team against the Sens last year during the playoffs. We never cleared Price's crease, there always was a Sens player there. Our players covered their opponents terribly, often leading to a free Sens scoring on us.

We all want Price to steal games when we need them. But you have to be realistic when the defensive game of our team is atrocious.

Anderson's a good goalie. But if you switched him and Price teams, Craig would be ran out of town while Price would look like a god.
