Price's change is in fact that he's no longer calm and cool. Or at least not looking cool. He's exchanged late but nice looking glides for early push offs and atheticism. He's challenging shooters and making better timings when going down. To me he looks more like a player who wants to stop a puck rather than someone willing to look good not stopping it. An unintended lesson from Halak to the thoroughbred while the thoroughbred was forced to watch? dunno.
Somewhere in this there's resentment and I'm sure there will always be for you but you must admit he has improved leaps and bound over last year

You seem to know Carey very well? Family??? Speculation??? Any way you slice it, he is playing more like he is capable, and that's what all Habs fans wanted...or most Habs fans anyhow...

well according to one on the main board, the save Price made was a result of his poor positioning and slow reaction.

And according to many others, LaRose shot it right at Price's glove. The implication being, Price had his glove there much earlier and LaRose took his time to pick a shot at Price's glove.

I read that main board post, and had a good chuckle. At first I thought that guy was kidding.

Then I WTF'ed

Anything not to give Montreal any credit whatsoever.

To be fair to the haters, that's (sort of) what Price said himself.

What do you expect him to say "Yeah it was save of the year, I'm awesome" ?

Of course there was luck involved in the play, but that goes for most "save of the year" candidates. It was a fantastic save and Carey's instincts on .it we're phenominal.

as a long-time goalie, I can tell you luck is a big part of the position - at the same time a very good goalie, like Price, puts himself in a position to be lucky...

This save only happens because Price was quick enough to get his glove in position. To that end, it really isn't luck after all, but skill!

Well it's not hard to see the logic, really. I mean, with Halak gone and Auld as back-up, Price is the number one man now, undisputed. There's no real pressure to him losing his job to the other guy, which puts him more at ease and let's him concentrate more on the game and less on whether or not he'll be in for the next game.

Yes it is.

Price is playing his game. Not Halak's. Two completely different goalies.

The only people who see that as logic deal in mysticism. Or denial.

But how is that an "unintended lesson from Halak"

Earl is like Jack Todd. The only compliments they can give are backhanded ones. It's so obvious that the success of one player eats them up inside. Sometimes it isn't the GM or the player that is the problem, it's the fan. But all to often the fan blames the former two than blaming himself for his or her own stupidity and irrational views.

Nice hyperbole. Last year "His game" was good enough for a 13-20-5 record and not even top 20 in any major goaltending stat. He obviously learned another game.

Halak is in the top echelon of goaltenders in the league, you are going to read his name a lot in the news and on hockey boards, so you might as well stop being whiny about it.

I believe this. Some athletes seem to be this way, he is relaxed just like the year he broke in the league. I think he is a guy that has a low key demeanor but sort of nervous at the same time, with no Halak around, he has eased back into the style and caliber of play that got him drafted 5th overall, I find it interesting how he has been accepted by the fans at the Bell center, not just the ones that yell Carey!! Carey!! after a save and boo him at the first goal, but the fans who appreciate hockey and know the game....He has showed up to play this year and looks more like a 28-30 year old instead of a guy thats just 23. Good for price, because this could have been disastrous, instead it has been fun to watch.Bravo Carey Price!!!!!!

As a guy who played between the pipes I can tell you this. On those desperation lunges it's a 50/50 thing. You jab out your glove where you expect the puck to go, and funny enough sometimes it ends up in there. Goalie gloves are huge these days though. They cover a lot of space.

So it's a bit of luck and a bit of skill. Hell of a save though. Just hard getting your glove into position to make the save

He was to a certain extent. He's been very sharp at challenging, holding rebounds and mamking hard saves look easy this year.
