From what I heard from people that were at the summer camp, Price came out of the summer camp as the frontrunner, but he'll still need a good camp in december. Would be great to see another Habs goalie on the wjc team for Canada. (Theo, Garon, Michaud as backup)
I don't pay much attention to his stats this year. After the playoffs I wonder if they will bring him over to Hamilton to give him the chance to see what the AHL is like. Next year we will start to see what he can do when he turns pro, from there we'll see what happens.
From what I've seen, his rebound control has improved and he defies the shooter a lot more. He does seem less poised this year however. I wonder if playing behind a poor defense and being left to his own devices a lot of the time is starting to get to him. It will be interesting to see how he does at Team Canada's camp...
As I've mentioned elsewhere, he has nothing more to learn in Junior besides gaining playing experience, imo. The sooner he comes under Melanson's tutelage, the better.
