The team didnt carry Price. Outside of the last 10 games where the entire team shat the bed, Price was a huge part in why they were doing so well.

Montreal was middle of the pack defensively and piss poor on the PK.

Lets also not pretend like last year was some amazing accomplishment. It was a partial schedule which had Montreal breaking down physically and fading by game 48. If it was a full 82 games, they would have been lucky to make the playoffs.
