I felt fine with Price's contract regardless. Are people actually complaining about it?

Wow. If Mason was a hab, we'd assume he would be more messed up than Price. Literally no chance his confidence would be able to find itself again.

Hopefully he turns it around.

This is kind of odd actually. Price is an obvious comparable to Steve Mason, and there are few of them out there -- and one would think that Price, with more experience and better stats, would be worth more money. Wasn't this brought up by CBJ?

That's around the going rate for a young goalie with upside like Mason/Price that haven't really proven anything in the playoffs yet. Price has won a series but hasn't really dominated in the playoffs and Mason was shelled in his one playoff series. Sophomore jinx ala Price and I expect him to be better.

I'd assume Mason's side brought up Vezina finalist and Calder trophy.

Are they comparing Mason and Price on the main board yet? I have a feeling it will be Mason is worth his contract and will rebound whereas Price is overpaid and will be a bust.. Isn't that how it always goes here @ HF with anything Habs related on the main board..

That's way too much in my honest opinion.

I never had a problem with Price's contract as its still half of Halak's almost, but I think its a tiny overpayment to Price but imo a tiny overpayment is worth it now for Price so he doesn't fleece us when he proves himself.

You give him an extra 10% now, more than he's worth, for his potential, so he doesn't have sour grapes when it comes time for his next contract.

But no doubt mason's contract makes you feel better about it, especially considering Niemmi was turned down for less.

You mean Price losing his last 9 playoff starts?

Not really too much.

It's not a huge overpayment.

At least they didn't give him a stupid contract like Thomas got.

Still, the contract is good. He's a young goalie who has the potential to be top notch. Not his fault the team compiles crap in front of him.
