I agree with whoever said Price was being ruined. He hasn't been at his best but playing behind this team is killing him. He already had bad confidence to begin with, and he's not going to recover anytime soon if they leave him out to dry every game.
Habs are pros at making good players bad, and then trading them when they are worthless so that they can become decent players elsewhere.
Which is why nobody should give up on the young guys just yet.
Price will be fine one day. Fleury was in this spot, getting torched in front of a terrible D at the same age (actually when he was 22 as well the Pens sucked) and he didn't become terrible. Price is not going to be helped much from this, but everyone acts as if he's some bust because he's had a bad 3 weeks. Before that, the guy was top 10 in the league and now we all want to act like THAT was the fluke and THIS is the real Price? Nah, I find that dubious. But are these the real Habs? Perhaps.
My dad is hilarious when the Habs suck, he gets so frustrated that what he says makes absolutely no sense.
Example from tonight (all in Italian by the way): "Look at those Kostitsyns! What are they doing! They look like 4 bananas!"
post of the night. you should set your dad up with an account here
Price is not playing that well reguardless of the D in front of him, he is sliding all over the place out of position and not locking down rebounds. Halak needs to take over for the next 5 games, Price gotta work on his game.
This team has allowed an average of over 5 goals per game in the past 11 straight. Something is seriously wrong from the coaching all the way out.
Gainey was an absolute idiot to trade Huet last year. Price was thrown to the wolves long before he was ready and he absolutely choked like i have never seen before. It may well have ruined his career in Montreal as he will never hear the end of it as long as he is here. And we all know for sure how fragile of a person he is.
The manure will hit the fan after this embarrassment......This is beyond pathetic now.....Rock bottom.
I wouldn't be so quick to define this team's "rock bottom." The Habs are like a crack addict. You think the addict's at rock bottom when he overdoses in a Greyhound bus bathroom, but two weeks later he reaches a new low by blowing some dude in an alley for 45 cents. This is low, but this team can sink lower if they don't get some help.
