Price is still better than 99% of the goalies aged 18-23. The much vaunted "Monster" hasn't been better or anything but you don't see him being thrown under a bus (probably cause he's not a top 5 pick). Unless Price whiffs at age 27, I will not bash him like some feel the need to do here. Even Luongo has issues. Last year against Chicago for example, plus has he won a Vezina? A goalie's success is very dependent on the team he plays with. Price has disappointed his teammates and the fans a lot less than the teammates have disappointed him and the fans.
k let me get this straight.. with horrible defence, lazy forechecking, turnover after turnover, then coming back, playing strong, our goaltender gives us a chance to come back. We come back, get an extra point, bring it to overtime, then a perfect shot to end the game and all some people can comment on is that price sucks?? Honestly ****** go watch another sport..a non-team sport, like golf or tennis , stupid stupid fans....
I don't know what game you were watching, or if you just had Price-tinted sunglasses on. I commend him for his effort and for sparking us in the 1st, but he didn't get us a point by himself tonight, cut the crap, it was a team effort to come back in the 3rd.
An okay game by Price, certainly wasn't to blame for the loss. He kept the Habs in the game in the 3rd and it was a perfect shot in OT that ended the game. Sometimes teams just lose it isn't always someones fault.
Price gives up quite a few of those. He seems to still go down too early. I do think he was our second best player of the game, so take that for what it is. Price ends up on his knees as the guy is shooting and tries to go side-to-side in the crease but no one can stop a bullet top shelf from their knees.
That's what I'm seeing. There's no need for him to be on his knees with a lone guy attacking two defenders and taking a shot from 30 fts away. The shot may have been perfect but even perfect shot don't get through when a goalie is perfectly positioned. All in all, a young goalie's error IMO. Overall, he had an OK game.
