Don't laugh, you think that because of a few glaring mistakes that make him look foolish, but that is because he's agressive and needs to learn when not to go for it, but Price IS one of the best puckhandlers out there and probably will become the best. And he is known for it by all is peers and its in the other teams game plan.

Price is a key piece to our transition game. Sucks you can't see that and only see is couple big mistakes.

I don't know if he's a great puckhandler but he certainly is a great passer, dare I say puckmover.

Then most NHL goalies must be poor puckhandlers because he is known as one of the top 2-3 guys in the NHL in terms of puckhandling...have you SEEN Luongo and Thomas handle the puck? The difference is massive.

He's a good puckhandler in terms of his skill, but he definitely needs to work on his focus and his judgment. He needs to learn to eliminate the 'saucer pass over the opponent's stick' types of plays.

Why?

Because he made a couple of plays that ended up in the net over about 70 games, his focus and judgment is suddenly poor??

I guess Thomas is not a terrible goalie since he gave up a couple of weak goals in the playoffs...

Sorry but no he isn't a known top 2-3 guy in the league at handling the puck and you'd get laughed off these forums if you posted that anywhere but here.

I like him too, doesn't mean I have to be riding his dick as well.

Not true, if you take off the rose colored glasses and watch the game it's actually fairly obvious in some games. It isn't the big mistakes I'm even referring to it's the little ones. Sometimes you can watch him play the puck and he only has around a 50% success rate with the puck winding up on one of our players sticks. It doesn't take anything other than eyes and knowing how to count to notice it. I love Price but some people around here are seriously on the guys dick. He isn't even a top 5 at handling the puck let alone 2-3.

The only thing that sucks is that some people are so clearly bias in favor of our players and can't watch a game objectively, then go around making assumptions about HFboards posters who don't share their opinion.

If you read my posts I never once brought up big glaring mistakes and in fact have always stated either that it was the little plays or didn't specify. But go ahead making an assumption about me because I don't agree with you.

I could really care less who says what on these boards. I prefer to speak to those that work in the game and get paid to make NHL personnel decisions. A friend of my family is a pro scout and obviously those folks are "plugged in" to what other scouts and front office excecutives think of players. The word around the league is that you have to dump the puck in the corners or you won't get much of a forecheck against Montreal because Price whips it out or up to his players and out. If you are smarter than those folks that are paid to evaluate NHLers, then I apologize, but I think I'll take his word on it.


...and as far as your pathetic comments about favoritism and "riding his dick", they are pretty comical considering I was a pretty harsh critic last year saying CP needed to mature and take his craft much more seiously.

If you don't see him as top 5 then name me in order the top 5 puckhandlers in the NHL.

winner winner, chicken dinner.

The guy who made this article is the nhl fantasy correspondent for TSN
