so is Halak and nobody stood up for him in the organization. Price had no business in nets.
I think its pretty clear that Price has more upside.
IMO he needs a better coach and system for him to suceed.
Halak is a great goaltender but his movement and change of direction aren't as smooth as price, his puck control is not at Price level, his size doesn't help and his rebound control is sometimes off.
I know you could say the same negatives about Price but IMO his problems is in his head and coaching. How many pucks that goes by him are either deflected pucks or he never ever saw it or evev sometimes at his feet. IMO puck sighting is his most prominent weakness and he needs to correct it. IMO a change of goalie coach is in order (what about François Allaire? he seems to have done a real good job with Hiller). Oh also a better defensive system that force the shooting from the outside and not let the shot from the point goes through could help.
I did not Boo at all yesterday...
But when Price trow his arms in air, I was out of my mind. It was painful. The team I love just told me too Puck Off.
Well then his jesture was not directed at you. He stated that he reacted to those who booed him incessantly.
As a fan, it's an obligation to support the club. But to quote Mike Tyson..."If you don't like what you're hearing...turn off your station." If you don't like what you're watching, just get up and leave. Displays like that last game only serve as a giant warning to any player who might consider signing up with Montreal to just stay the hell away.
So not only do the higher taxes and the massive media mircoscope over the city work against the franchise, now you got overzealous fans ready slice and dice you up when things go south. Yeah, we'll draw lots of talent with this environment.
Exactly, go Carey show the ********* up!! Some people need to learn the sport a little. I was very happy with the first half of his season and of course not as much with the second half but I still think he will be a top flight talent in this league for years to come.
