This. I've been a supporter of both goalies, and as a former goalie, I can watch those goals and understand the excuses made for why they were difficult for Price to save, and how we're missing player X and defender Y. Difficult, mind you. Not impossible. Goalies who step up in the playoffs find ways to battle and stop those pucks against unfavourable odds.

I'm in no way saying that Carey is garbage or that he should be dealt or any of that. But at this point in their careers, Halak has shown an ability to battle and stop pucks when he has to, under difficult circumstances, more than Price imo. Price has games where he makes lots of big stops, and games where he saves a really high percentage of the shots that he faces...

...But in the playoffs, you fight better teams that play with more of a sense of urgency, so you are going to face harder shots and better scoring opportunities. And so far, in his limited experience, he hasn't shown me that he knows what it means to battle for the puck and prevent those killer momentum swing goals in the face of adversity. He's still young, and he may find it. But right NOW, the Habs need some competitive spirit from between the pipes that may become infectious.

It's sad.....even if we don't have the skill, at least show some emotion and effort. You really start to question the character of some of these players.

Shh... don't blame them. People are only allowed to blame the Kostitsyn's and Price.

Get them the F outta here. I'm done with them. No effort. If they were trying and giving their all and just struggling, I'd support them to no end. They are an embarrassment to the uniform.
Yeah, let's watch them get snatched up by another team for practically nothing and turn into stars, just like every other player Montreal gave up on

I really can't imagine losing that game. I mean the crowd will be so much on the Habs back if game 4 doesn't go accordingly. I guess it will mean who they'll have to make tons of changes. They can't make miracles out of nothing.

I love how we let Thomas see every shot perfectly... everytime Boston shoots there are at least 2 Bruins screening and crashing the net.

I think Bob Gainey will step down this summer. Or he'll stay, but he should bring this team in a new direction.

What are their plus minus compared to Plekanec and AK46

Again, I totally disagree. Any goalie standing inside the blue paint has a chance to stop any shot. Whether they do, or don't, at crucial times goes a long way to determining if they are clutch performers, or not.

Yeah, let's wait for them to shine here. Even if it costs us another copule of seasons of suckage. Is this a price you'd be willing to pay as a fan?

When players' problems are mental they need to be ditched. Plekanec is another story - he just sucks this year. We can't have two small centers on our top two lines. That's why he's expendable.
