Price was bad before his terrible stretch here at the end.
He wasn't bad.. He just wasn't elite. He was very bad in the last stretch
HM: Eller, Prust
Subban should be #1 on everyones list. He proved this season that he can be an elite defenceman in this league.
Gallagher has been the most consistent forward on the team. The forward/offensive version of gorges and then some
Pleks has just been pleks. People don't always notice how vital he is to the team except for when he isn't in the lineup. He plays all the hardest minutes well, allowing the other forwards to have better matchups
Subban, great at both ends of the ice, was amazing
Gallagher, "la bougie d'allumage", exceptional rookie season, became huge part of offense
Markov, just his presence makes things different, great veteran plus PP general
I think it's important to consider the roles the players had. Plekanec and Markov had some really difficult assignments and they did an admirable job seeing how we're tied with the bruins for 2nd.
HM: Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Eller, Prust, Ryder
BTW, I don't think I've seen Ryder's name once, even in honorable mentions. The guy rejuvenated our offense for a pretty long stretch. It came at a key time too. But I can see why he was left off since he went cold recently and wasn't with us at the start.
