Were there really people that cared that we traded Huet when we had Halak and Price ? I mean really cared that we lost Huet.

I know that some people disagreed with the trade because they were scared Price wasn't ready that year, or in the future.

But I can't say I remember people being genuinely upset about the loss of Huet in itself. I think I was a bit absent from the boards at that time so maybe i missed it.

Add Gorges to that

And Cammalleri and Subban because they were born and bred Ontarian and might have this idea that quebecer were wrong in trying to seperate

and Gionta because he was born and bred an american and he might have this Usa are better than Canada attitude

and Markov also because he was born and bred a communist and might have that idea that every westerner are Capitalist idiot


yep trade them all just in case

I still defend that he had an unfair reputation and got crucified just for defending himself. He was a quality poster too, especially before everyone couldn't look past his username.

rofl, well, that's one guy who had a crush on Huet. I mean, some are in love with Arthukin, Laraque, etc. They don't really represent a trend or anything.

They boo price at the bell centre like a WWE villian because thats what entertains them. While I'm positive he takes his performance seriously, if his teammates and coaches support him I dont think he cares what anyone else really has to say. Nor should he.

As for whether it can be reversed? Winning cures everything.
Of course Price cares what the people think. You think he would have raised his arms a la Roy if he didn't??..Or did he do that for his teammates?..
Every player cares about how they're perceived by the fans and the city they play in. Don't be so naive.
Everybody has their cracking points. If things are going bad, you can ignore some comments here and there but at some point it'll get to you.
If it's going well for you, everybody enjoys being the hero. Having people cherish and idolize you must certainly be very gratifying.

Of course the players care. The NHL wouldn't exist if there was no fans.

This is my perception only. I love the guy and hope to see him in a Habs jersey for 10 years or more. Only time will tell.
I don't think someone that doesn't want to play hockey would cry after a PO loss.
Of course the kid wants to play.
It really just comes down to us surrounding him better. I think our team is better overall in terms of work ethic compared to what it was a couple years back. I think it might be a little too late to have some veteran placed around him all the time. But I think the positive is that his best buddy seems to be Gorges. Cammy seems to get along rather well with him as well, and with PK now in the portrait I think the team's dynamics changed a lot.

I expect Price to have a monster season. To think he was chosen to be part of the All-Star team just 2seasons ago (granted, by our own fans, but man, our fans actually liked him not too long ago! how crazy!)

We need to start a "Give Carey a fair environment to succeed in thread", just because if he succeeds we succeed. We need to give this kid a break and start supporting him. He's on our team, he's the most important player (the goalie). We need to do something to stop this before it gets out of hand. A movement is necessary.

I hate to break it to you, but it's not HF boarders who are going to go boo Price at the bell centre.

His homerism was evident and annoying. He failed to recognize many of the Huet flaws and mistakes.

I hate to break it to you but HF boarders talk to other Habs fans who do. Raising awareness has to start somewhere. Where do you wanna go? Beside the Kovalev protestors outside the Bell?

i don't really know what brought it on besides halak going on a hot streak, but i haven't seen such a lack of respect for a habs player since patrice brisebois. maybe give our goalie a chance before ******** all over him and saying he's destined to fail ?

No kidding. If you quit on every young guy and even say he needs to leave to help his career, you'll NEVER EVER win a Stanley Cup. You can't jettison young guys for not delivering immediately or you'll never have any picks pay dividends. Will Leblanc be next? It's a good thing our GMs don't pay attention to posters or the media. These Price haters have a sense of entitlement, like he should deliver a cup on a platter and no less will not be tolerated. Bunch of spoiled ****s, mad at a player because someone somewhere once said he will do what Patrick Roy did in 1986. Just let the guy's development play out. The same people who say he won't succeed here will be pointing fingers at the Habs organization when he thrives. All the ***** fans who boo him will forget they were part of the reason he left and then start *****ing. Well, guess what? As a fan, sometimes you have to have some responsibility.

I'm from Manitoba so I rarely hear what's happening in la belle Province. Even though I supported Halak and was disappointed when they traded him, I have to say that this is very sad. Let's give the guy a chance - and I don't mean 1 game, 10 games or even half a season. He is a work in progress and he will take time to demonstrate consistency. Guy Lafleur took three years to develop in a star. Price may require more time because he has only been playing part time the past two years. I can't imagine the pressure he must feel.

Not sure if you read that thread carefully but pretty sure that while everybody here are Habs fans, nobody WANT him to fail. But it is a possibility based on how this city is desperately seeking for a scapegoat IF we happen to not have a strong start of the season and guess who will eventually pay the price?

And again, reading lessons are in order. Everybody, at least on this board, as Halak or Price fans they are, want him to succeed 'cause if they're not idiots, they'd be more fans of the team than of the players. But then, everybody knows what's going on right now elsewhere and we all know that Price will end up being the scapegoat. How much proof do you really need? Again, mocked for a save, booed for a 3rd star.....In what world are you living in?

If he had a rough start, I predict that they'll have to let him go before it becomes a living hell. So yes, I predict he will thrive elsewhere. It's not that hard to predict actually. We are actually not talking about a guy who's not really producing here and then boom, ends up a star elsewhere. WE KNOW, with time, that he'll end up great. Just that Montreal won't have that patience.

So either Price picks up and never look back. Either he struggles from the get go and gets traded at one point. Then, it doesn't become a question of him getting better elsewhere, for sure he will. It becomes a question of what we will have been able to get for him.

But EVERYBODY wants him to succeed. Unless some people egos are more important than the team's success.

Ok, "Here I go again" hoping Price will succeed even though there "Aint no love in the heart of the city".
Hopefully the other teams wont "Slide it in" or we will do our "Crying in the rain", eventually singing "Now youre gone" asking "Is this love?".
So please Price, "Dont break my heart again", be "Ready and willing" take it "Slow and easy", be our "Soldier of fortune" and maybe in the "Still of the night", we will celebrate with "Wine, woman and a song"!



Sorry, just had to....

It's not wrong to predict this, I must say. I should re-state myself because I feel you are telling it the way it is. I was railing against those who would say he has to go to save his career but then turn around and blame management for trading him and not being patient. No one can have it both ways. But why does it always have to be like this? Montreal's exceptional environment of expectations is a major stumbling block if we're ever going to build a cup winner. Who's to say this wouldn't have happened if we took Kopitar instead back in '05? Anyway, I'm kind of whining but I think what you've said is spot on. But who exactly replaces him if he falters or fans are too harsh on him? I hope Martin can get this team playing a tight system and scoring goals for Price like they did with Halak. Price will take the fall in the eyes of the mob even if the Habs have 400 man games lost to injury and score 200 goals. It's sad it's come to that.

I know what you mean, Not many in montreal has had consistent success in montreal lately. The same that happened to huet, kovalev, theo, and others could have happened to halak (who knows!) sorry for mistakes its 6:00 and i havnt slept tonight.
