Good for him. Sure he could have played better for us this year, but he didn't deserve any of what went down last night.

Let's not run this kid out of town, seriously..

What gesture can we do to him to remind him that he's not Patrick Roy ?

What gesture can I do to you to remind you that he never said that? Or do you prefer to do like the medias/Habs fans do all the time and put words into people's mouth and then hate them for it?

unless I missed the thread I'm a bit surprised people aren't reacting on Price infamous youtube video recorded after game 1.

"I did that gesture to remind everyone what happens when you boo someone"

Him leaving isn't exactly like Roy leaving.

Keep booing him, run the 21 year-old kid out of town and hope he doesn't live up to his potential. Real smart.

lol yea I was sure with the few hundred drunken fans who were booing him yesterday !

I'm just saying that he needs to deflate his ego. At least, wait until you are actually a number 1 goaltender before having a ego like that.

It's more like ''yeah, run your players out of town''
and then, proceed to regret it because they have success somewhere else.

Ego? Are you kidding me? The kid sounded like he wanted to die during his PC and was essentially saying STOP PUTTING SUCH HIGH EXPECTATIONS ON ME. He said that last season people were comparing him to Roy and he really didn't like it.

He wasn't comparing himself to Roy by doing that. He was showing the city what can happen when you boo for no reason. It just so happens that lifting his arms up like that was the only way he could show that to 21273 fans during a game.

I don't think he was claiming to be Roy. I think he was reminding fans that running players out of town is a ridiculous thing to do and it often comes back to bite you in the ass, as it did with Roy. He's 21 years-old!! He may need some professional guidance but with his potential running him out of town is absurd when there are a gazillion reasonable alternatives. The booing comes from people who honestly have no regard for the well-being of this team, or people who are too ignorant to know what is in the team's best interest. These people live in a fantasy world of instant gratification where they believe because he had a bad year he has to give a **** what they think. We need price more than he needs us.

Are we going to run every player out of town who has a bad year? Do we need to be taught this lesson yet again?

It's obvious you don't need to be a Rhodes scholar to be Hab fan, some people at the Bell Centre and on this forum make that evident. Price's "gesture" was obviously directed at that portion of the crowd who wear Velcro shoes because doing up laces would be too tough for their pea sized brains.

I loved his quote when he said "I have 21 000 bosses"

So true.

What I liked, is that he didn't let in another goal after that.

I agree with Price. The booing was ridiculous, he played solid, stopped breakaways. He had an under .900 save pct for the series, but very few goals were directly him sucking. The Bruins played very well to build insane scoring chances against our completely decimated D corps, all 4 games.

Not only was it funny to see him do that, but what he meant was spot on. He can certainly talk to Brisebois and Carbo about that too.

There was 18 000 fans cheering at the Habs players right after the game. Still we have to focus on the few hundred drunken morons.

I like Carey Price, that is all.

Seriously?

On all 4 goals he was hung out to dry. Goal one, what a turnover! Goal 2, are you kidding me, habs 3 player, boston 2 and they get that undressed?!?! Goal 3 was offside, and a breakaway. Goal 4 again Ryder ALONE in front of the net.

Price has nothing to be ashamed of. Boston beat us by taking advantage of our mistakes, and them making close to none.

If you think Carey is a wuss for taking the booing to heart, well then you have no idea what it's like to try your best, and have your team fail you and you get all the ****.

You probably hit the nail on the head with that one.

Well, you, in particular, can don some pads and hockey equipment, you know what they look like, right, and show him you can tend goal better than him.

This idea was stolen from Tim Thomas' response last night. I give him all the credit.

eh, Price shouldnt give a crap what those few fans were yelling. but it takes him off his game so badly. The guy lacks of maturity, he should keep working on that and not get back at the fans, during the game itself, bringing back the Roy incident...
