No single player is responsible for a win or a loss in a team sport. It's very easy to sit back and point out mistakes and say "we would have won if..." or "we won because..." but the reality is goals are usually the end result of several mistakes, misplaces or poor decision making by one or more players.

I see too many comments, for any sport and all fan bases, but especially the Habs fans, that like to think the result of a loss or a win can be pinned down to one or a few players.

You win and lose as a team.

So i guess then people should stop saying that Thomas won the cup for the Bruins last year. Because who would want a cup right ?

I'll never understand how you can be a fan of more than one team, especially in the same conference and division.
It's like having two girlfriends but neither know about it.
You only get in trouble if you are found out

Exactly my thought.

I'd love it if someone can dig up all those old threads to list all the brilliant people who called for trading away Price and keeping Halak instead.

And if opportunity presents itself, we should remind the RDS crew and RDS commenters how they were dead wrong as well.

easy to laugh at in insight... but Halak did something no other goalie could in the last 17 years...

and if anything, there's no guarantees Price will bring us close to that in the next 10 years, even though he's very talented...

The only thing I want to say , is that Thomas didn't win it by himself , he was a good goalie during the playoff but he didn't stand on his
head.

My point is , and I might be wrong , but I don't believe we can win a cup with this team , without having Price stand on his head !

Before Halak was traded away, the Flyers were really high on Price and much less on Halak. Now Carey Price is perhaps hated even more than Subban in Philly.

What? Tim Thomas had a historical season and playoff. 0.940 Sv% and 1.98 GAA in the playoffs alone.

But yeah. This Carey Price business doesn't surprise me in the least. He's a rock. I hope people remember this as the season goes on. We will have more slumps. Carey will always eventually return to solid, calm, dependable hockey. Anyone have a vid of the save he made on (Peverly?) the breakaway that was huge given the score?

I doubt a goalie can ever be hated by an opposing team as much as a guy like PK. Even many Bruins fans have a grudging respect for Price.

To put that in context, during his playoff run Halak posted a .923 save percentage. He had some stretches of brilliance but they weren't nearly so sustained as Thomas's playoffs.

Say what you will, IMO Thomas was outplayed by Price in the first round.
He won the round, but it certainly not on his back (not entirely anyways).

Not saying he didnt play well, just that Price played better.

Therego, I do believe the guy DOES in fact have a point.

And that includes him fizzing out against Philly, cause he crashed and burned in that ECF round.

Price getting the first star != winning completely because of price.

Budjac wouldnt have won though the bum couldnt even beat florida, the team did their job scoring a single goal but he couldnt win.

The main reason as to why the Flyers hate Price is because they failed to get him before Halak was traded away. To be honest, there are those Flyers fans who have a grudging respect for Price. But a goalie, however good he could be, isn't likely to have a chorus of boos coming his way, unlike, say, a #1 D-man.

It's your opinion , but against MTL , he was not the best goalie. ! Against Tampa , some ups and downs ... giving 5 goals or more in 4 of the 7 games.....

Again , to value my point , when is the last time we won a playoff matchup without having a goalie who stands on his head !

How could the Bruins fans not have alittle respect for a guy who has dominated their team in his career?

15-4-1 is Price's record against Boston in his career, pretty freakin impressive I'd say lol

Oh I see.
When the habs were losing it was because of poor habs defence obscuring Price's great effort.
Now that the habs are winning it is because of Price and nothing to defence.

Here you go, just to make it more valid !

The Habs are winning because the team is playing better. Better than your Bruins.
