If I was starting a franchise, I'd probably want to see what other goalies are around.

I'd get Price and trade for/sign a better goalie for him to work under.

I vote Price.

Durability is a valid factor nowdays, Halak never played more than 47 games at any level.

Price proved he could handle way more game than Halak who wears down a lot when he plays too much.

I love how people forget that Price is 22 and then get boners on Lundqvist, Nabokov and Kiprusoff who started at 23, 24 or 25.

SURE, Price isn't a top 10 goalie right now. Surely, that means he sucks and will never improve. And for a 22 year old goalie, his stats are actually good.

price has more value on the trade market so him.

I like Halak better now and IMO he's more sure fire... More likely to always be a top-15 goalie.

But Price has top-3 goalie written all over him. He (and MAF) are the next great round of Canadian goalies.
