Then Carbo is to blame, I can't believe they're doing this.

First they favoured Price over Huet, now an injured Price over a healthy Halak?

come on!

I think this was obvious for a while. Halak should have played the last game.

Let the excuse train roll in. Every team that exits the playoffs prematurely puts out a list of 20 players on their roster that was injured.

Not only should the goal not have counted but there should have been a penalty on the play....kinda ironic that potentially the "turning point" of the series is on an injury which should have been penalised but was not and that was the turning point against the canes a few years ago (Koivu's eye injury).

Figures...
Yeah, im happy he said it because there was no reason for him to play like he did in this series.

If Price was not 100 percent and plays the way he did ,does it really pardon anyone for the final result?

In the pain of a disappointing playoff exit there is one thing that irks me about this season - the preference , nay, the obsession, with fast tracking Price and keeping him in the nets come hell, high water, or bad play.

"J'avais seulement deux doigts fracturés", a poussé Price avec un sourire en coin quand les journalistes ont insisté à ce sujet lundi.

2 fractured fingers? Is he joking or...?

God I hate when you can't tell if he's joking or not.

RDS has changed the article around a lot since it initially went up. Especially the headline which used to read "Price etait blesse".

Well, the article is written to indicate he was joking.

Nonetheless, he's the starter and starters play through injuries. All these calls for Halak and Carbo's head for not starting him are absurd.

Price did not lose Montreal the series.

We only made it to round 2 because we played Boston. The team largely played like crap for two rounds.

rds.ca is such a bad source of information, it's not even funny. they keep doing that, changing the titles, and stuff. anything for the first headline I guess.

Sounds like a BIG excuse to me or Montreal has a terrible coach. Price wasn't stealing the show, so there was no need to play him injured, why play him injured if he is struggling so much? Halak is a good back up, and at this point there isn’t much difference between the two goaltenders. To play any goaltender with broken fingers is ridiculous, would a catcher in baseball play with broken fingers? No. So this is an excuse 100%

sounds pretty sarcastic to me, kind of like the broken leg joke.

"I only had two fractured fingers", Price said smirking.

It even says in the article, that he had 2 massive years and now he 's going back home,turning off his phone and going fishing.

can't agree with that.

All other things being equal the goaltender at the other end of the rink outplayed Price by a considerable margin. What that means on the blame scale is not important, nor is it important to totally pin this on a single scapegoat. But I think it needs to be realized that Price has not yet shown he's the goaltender that people think he already is. On the bright side perhaps the words "saviour" will be reserved and comparisons to Roy put away.

Are people really this gullible? For god's sake man.


HE WAS JOKING.

Do you really think someone would play goalie (let alone at the NHL level) with two broken fingers on one hand?

Impossible! Price's entire skeleton, including his fingers, are molecularly infused with adamantium!

He was more solid than Price that's for sure. He gave up one weak goal to the 2 per game by Price.

Why not let Halak do it? Why in the hell would we trade a realy good young goalie for an oild veteran? Keep Halak. We need him to puch Price in the back....and if Price cant handle it well at least we have a decent fallback plan.

I'd rather have a excellent young goalie prospect as a backup than a ****** veteran most likely near the end of his career. Having a great goalie coach who helps out the young goalies is better than having a veteran back up goalie.

Just like znk said, both young goalies push each other and make each other better.

An RDS reporter ran a story a few days ago saying Price was injured.

That same reporter asked him today, Price said no, and finally admitted that, like most players, he was not 100% during the playoffs, mostly because of wear and tear.

This is the furthest RDS been able to go to validate their story.

Price was fine.

Price wasn't injured. His 2fingers broken remark was a joke.
He said he was mentally drained come 2nd round, because of all the hockey he's played over the last 2years. He said it felt like he played hockey for 2 straight years.

Injured or not, he didnt help us to win the series, just like he did in the AHL or the world championship.

Im a big fan of Price and i know he will be a succesful goalie, but i have to say he was close to terrible in the series againt the Flyers. The 1 or 2 consecutives softs goals he gave in each game was a killer.

It was a very big PRICE to pay for his first experience in the nhl playoff but at least he has learned a lot and will only be better next year.

Lets see what he can do on his own next season when he will have to play around 60 games.

Am I the only one who, after watching Price get so many starts, had a hard time adjusting to Halak? He's a great goalie, but he's so much slower than Price, and his puck handling isn't there.

The result of starting Halak was much the same as starting Price. I'm glad they played Price for the last game - he had a much better game than his previous games, and ended the season on a... Well, I'll say better note. He's the starter, so they're going to go with him.

The future looks bright.
