Problem is in a cap world you can't have a real strong team that won't need it's goalie to be the best player AND have a goalie that is paid as the best player. So the Habs are caught between a rock and a hard place. You can't pay your goalie top dollar and then whine that the defence sucks. In a cap world You improve the defence by taking away from the offence or you get a goalie that isn't paid top dollar. So if you keep your well paid goalie, he and his fanboys better learn to live with a weaker defence or weaker offence if MB decides to go that way.

Right now Price is the best paid player on the team. He needs to be the best player NOT every game but a majority of the games AND he needs to show up for the playoffs. Not one or two games in the playoffs but most of them.
