awesome pic! I'm impressed that he made the cover of ESPN magazine, considering they hardly cover hockey anymore

This is exactly why it's even harder to trade Gorges. They are such good buddies. He at least has someone to share what he's going through. I almost bet they will not trade Gorges until Price gets a little older.. My two cents...

Even if his timing, positioning and reactions are perfect, he can still be beaten by a deflection or tip or 100 mph bullet that neither man nor machine could catch."

amazing.
Epic, that's hockey

I was thinking the same thing. I saw a picture on ESPN.com and thought "that can't be the cover", but apparently it is. I'm a Bruin fan, but I'm also a hockey fan, and seeing Price on the cover makes me happy. Hockey needs more faces on covers. I'm pretty sure Crosby, Ovy and now Price are the only 3 to grace the cover of ESPN magazine (I don't think NHL has had an SI cover in years) since the lockout. So Price being on it is saying something.

Good read, and I agree, those pads are awesome. He doesn't wear those in game?

Just read this (I get the Mag)and am surprised that so many ex-Hab goalies would refuse to talk for the article.Only Hayward (first time anyone's asked him about anything in 10 years,I reckon ) and Theodore (who was decent considering what he could have said) would comment on record.There was a quote from Dryden's book,but he refused to talk,as did most of the other guys.

He only wears those in vintage jersey games .. but man do they loook gooooooood.

BTW Bruins fan, can you call Julien and tell him to slow down a little bit? How are we supposed to catch you if you continue to be on a tear, lol.

I remember when Robidas was not playing because of roster congestion, he was not taken along on road trips so he wouldn't distract the team and Theo had to sleep alone. His game went down. After they realized this, they let him come along and Theo's game came back up. Coincidence? I think not...

Every girl I know thinks he is the "cutest" guy in the world. He gets so much ass in clubs.
