i didn't get that feeling at all. pretty much everyone gave everything they had in some capacity. it just didn't happen. that's life.

Well he play one weird ass game tonight. He saved 2 or 3 potential goals only to give up 2 usually routine saves. He's a beast though. I'm so excited to see how he'll do next season.

Great season Price.

Down the road, he played a lot of hockey in the last 20 months or so. It has caught him back, but I'm confident he will bounce back. He's on for a great season next year.

In the playoffs, momentum is very important. Carey lost it at the beginning of this series, and his defense didn't nearly played good enough to give it back to him.

The kid is 20. Mentally, this was very tough for him. He needs to learn from this experience, and down the road, it will pay. He still has some things to learn, and I refuse to blame him tonight. He gave one bad goal, but the others were not his fault.

Go Carey! Have a nice summer!

He was god awful in the playoffs but he just wasn't ready for the big show quite yet. Not his fault. Keep your head up Carey and we'll see you in September.

Carey Price is ****ing awesome. He's just very young and very green right now. Plus somebody said he was Jesus and he heard them, which must have messed him up a little. It's pretty much a question of maturity and experience.
He is going to be scary good in a couple of years.

I think we're gonna hear that the hand injury was real in the next couple days.

CBC said he was using his practice trapper today in net... and his practice trapper has more padding in it.... Just more evidence for the broken hand theory.

Kid did his best tonight and came back big time in the third. Glad to hear the Bell Center fans backed Price with cheers after his bad goal. This experience will undoubtedly be benefic to him as a man.

But what worries me is that he didn't looked like he had any fun on the ice during most if not all of the playoffs. Hopefully he'll chill out in the summer and come back to training camp a refreshed young man, but I'm worried this experience will leave him a big scar as far as pro hockey goes.

There's no doubt Price can bounce back, but maybe we'll have to downgrade our expectations of Carey next year as well.

Price is too orthodox. Sometimes you have to do unorthodox things to give your team a chance. He is going to be very very good, but not great!

What amazes me the most his is SV% on break aways...He almost never gives up goals 1 on 1.

I think he just wasen't sharp mentally this series...not covering his angles properly, not coming out to challenge the shooter enough etc. That stuff is easily fixed and for a goaltender his size, he's very quick on his feet and with his legs.

I'm not worried one bit about Carey...great learning experience for him and it makes me so happy that the Montreal crowd was behind him the whole time, even after the 4th goal. They know he will be great and we will backing him up for years and years..

I dont think it was mental sharpness or the technical things. The guy is 20 years old, he was in the juniors last year and he is being asked to do miracles in the playoffs where the intensity and style of play is completely different than anything he has EVER seen!

Martin Brodeur had a very shaky start and in my opinion, Price is better at the same age. How he will develop reamains to be seen but we hace a jewel in goals for years to come.

Ya for sure, but i do think mental fatigue had something to do with it. Playoff hockey or not, you get down that paddle a lot quicker on the Umberger wrap around goal that made it 3-3. As i said i'm not worried 1 bit because his reflexes are so darn good. Those 2 breakaway saves he made yesterday were unreal...

Flyer fan here. Hats off to a 20 year old kid thrown into the highest pressure position in hockey. No he didn't put the team on his shoulders, but I don't think it was his job to do that. He'll bounce back, and I have a feeling we're not going to like playing against him for the next 15 years.

There wont be any golf for the Habs players this summer: all the players will be asked to improve their diving techniques instead. The 'Dive For 25' is still on!

From a Leafs fan...

Glad to see fans not taking the result of this series out on Price. It definitely was not his fault, if it wasn't for him, the Habs would have been out in the first round. Philly has a pretty impressive team, that is going to be good for years... lots of good character players that know their roles. No shame in losing to them. Richards, Carter, Lupul, Upshall, Briere, Hartnell, Prospal, Umberger... all of them are having a superb playoffs.

Price= overrated. Let's face it, he was the reason montreal lost the series. Now he CAN be a great goalie, the potential is definately there and his resume is definately something for him to be proud of. However, hearing ppl call him the next Roy or Dryden is absolutely ridiculous, especially after his average if not poor first playoff drive.
