Price is a top tier goalie, one that can maintain a 93-94% saves for stretches. The only thing going against him stats wise for last few years is that, the few stretches when the team played bad it really hurt his overall stats, and that's the same for every goalie, but what happens with Price is that he can be the best but he also can be really bad when off his game.

Habs are good defensively this year, they might be soft and have almost no physicality, but stats prove that they move the puck well (points from D), the team's goal differential is good and Subban / Markov is probably the most lethal pairing of the league offensively. Seriously, our defense is one big tough guy that can skate (I really thought Murray had more left in the tank, thought it was a decent pick) to replace Bouilion on third pairing away from being one of the best top6 in the league right now. And by tough I mean, not with fists but tough stay-at-home defenseman that can play PK and against top lines. Hopefully one of Pateryn or Tinordi developps as such. It's against big physical teams that this defense is exposed, not teams like the Wild. We'll see the true face of this team when we play more of our division.
