He isn't. Trade for something really nice. Probably get a solid top 4 D, prospect, and a 2nd. Then start Budaj or some other average goalie. We won't notice a single difference in net and improve our D, draft, and prospect pool. Take the blinders off people, Price is average.
I left for 10 mins and this is what the thread has come to?
Didn't watch the whole game but did Therrien call a timeout already? If not...your team gets scored...you see that there's no enthusiasm...you call your freakin timeout to try to get them going again. Crowd has to be one of the most silent I've heard (or not heard) in a long time....
Our D wasn't good before. Not sure if people noticed but Emelin was average for a whole lot of games before he got hurt and yet, we still manage to get some wins. Reading between the lines would also mean to understand that every team has their own injuries and Emelin alone won't be a reason why we'd wouldn't win in the playoffs. Having a really average D INCLUDING Emelin would....which I keep saying all along despite our record. A regular season record that is. Before Alexei got hurt, I already had our D has average and a reason for a short playoffs. I just hope that we won't solely think that Emelin alone got us gone early and that the whole D is a problem.
how good was Emelin? Average??? He is now the missing ingredient, without him our D is too soft and wont win too many playoffs games.
This thread has been pathetic to read. It's as if we're 9th and need a win for a playoff spot. Instead we're 2nd and because we're not mopping the floor with someone, we "suck" and Price is a bum, etc. Get a grip people. I'm out.
