Emelin 10 hits which resulted directly in Eller getting 5 goals.

What is the "Temple de la renommée" thing before the game?

I have tickets for that and the game.

Halak is good and all but he never played a whole season yet.

He's not a tank like Price

It's their Hall of Fame, pretty cool stuff but go early, sometimes it gets packed.

In 2009-2010 between the regular season, playoffs, and Olympics Halak played more and won more than Price or any other goaltender for that matter. All the while keeping his name in MVP discussions in each category.

If Price is a tank, Halak is a nuclear sub.

I guess it only takes one season to be labeled as a "nuclear sub".

I don't have much to say about Halak considering that since the trade he's been average to below average is his play more so than he has been stellar.

Actually, Halak played 70 games that year (45 regular season, 18 playoffs, 7 Olympics).

Price started 72 regular season games last year alone (and played 7 playoff games on top of that).

With Hitchcock in town and the team looking for Halak to get a win againts his former team, I predict taht it will be a very boring trap game, especially considering the blues are on the road.

They play like that pretty much all the time, they are 3rd in the league tied with the Sharks for GA with only 89 given up

Yup, I just expect it to be exaggerated considering they are on the road. Teams always playing tighter defensively and the neutral zone when they have last change.

Price is a tank, Halak is a back-up goalie.

Price's winning % is pretty impressive considering how high it was given the load of work in regular season games.

Good luck to you guys too. I'll take an OT game. the more points the merrier. If it goes to SO it could get ugly. We're 0-5 and you guys are 1-5 in SO's. Yowza...

And to those worried about us playing a trap, no need to worry. We play a very aggressive forecheck so your d better be ready to move the puck out of the zone

Of course you would filter out playoffs and Olympics, because those really weren't important games eh mythteller?

There is a big difference between playing a full NHL season as a Goalie, and playing half the year+PO+Oly.

The traveling in the NHL during the season is unique. Going from St-Louis down to the East coast, back to the West, changing time zones, playing back to back games or 3 games in a week with travel times. It's all very different.

The Olympic, yes, the level of skill is higher, but there's no travel. Once you're there, you don't have to waste any more time with long flights.
In the POs, intensity is much higher, so is adrenaline, but you also have a lot less travel.
POs are irrelevant however because they are not the Regular Season, the situation is different. Not only that, but playing 45ish games during the season + x PO Games does not equal 70+ Regular Season games + x PO games.
Getting to the POs with about 10-15 less games of hockey in the body makes a difference.

In any event, I'm not discrediting Halak's year. That was a phenomenal year, one he's unlikely to ever repeat. But let's not pretend like Halak has ever played a full NHL year. He hasn't done it yet. Doesn't mean he won't be able to too, just that he hasn't done it yet.

Why would I factor other types of games when I'm looking at only the regular season?

But just to make you happy and not make it appear like I'm making myths.

Halak in 70 games including playoffs and olympics had .54 winning%
Price in 79 games including playoffs had .52 winning %.

I'd still take Price in this instance, because 72 regular season games is just impressive and he looks to be doing it again this season. Olympics is meh considering it doesn't make your nhl team better, considering they are played with a completely different roster against completely different teams.

Also, I still don't consider them the same because by the time Halak played his first playoff game he had played only 52 games(regular season+olympics), while Price had played 72 games by the time game 1 of the playoffs came around, so they aren't entirely comparable, which is why I still think Price's feat of 72 games in a regular season while maintaining a .52 winning% is more impressive, than a 45 game regular season with a .57 winning %. But keep saying I'm myth making because it doesn't make Halak sound as impressive as you want him to sound(that doesn't mean I think that what he did that season wasn't impressive, but that won't stop you from saying otherwise).

Also I don't see how I was myth making when the original poster you what beef with was talking about the Price's ability to have played an entire nhl season. So I compared seasons. I don't see why this is troubling for you. I guess it doesn't fit you agenda of "Price isn't that good anyway" that you've been on for three years now.

The good thing is we usually play up to our competition. That being said, I will make no prediction.
