Why?

Since being traded the only thing he has proven is he can't stay healthy enough to be a workhorse #1 goalie.

He's had some good yaer statistically but Hitchock's system and a strong defense does that for goalies.

Okay. But then we keep saying that it's unfair to judge Price based on how poor our teams have been in front of him. So what do we want for Price? A great system with a strong defense right? If so....and if he does well....can we then say that "the only reason why Price does well is because of a great system and a strong D"???

One day, people will make me understand that double standards....Halak has no merit for what he has done...but Price isn't at fault for not having what Halak has had....

You can try to chip away at Halak's performances all you like he's a guy with a high compete level and focus. He'd be a dangerous threat to a team playing him in the playoffs... especially Montreal.

There is not a large gap in goaltending today as it was decades ago. Top goaltenders (stats wise) can change year from year. Obviously the better the team in front of the goalie helps a lot. I want the Habs to get better overall. No goalies should get discredited for the team in front of him as he still has to stop the puck. I preferably want to see our goalies have the easiest time due to the strength of the team in front of him. I want to see the Habs have the best team, not forward, defence, or goalie.

Halak's a great goalie, though he has had injury troubles. That article may be blown out of proportion but it doesn't paint him as a good teammate. They're a very good team playing the defending champs. The players and coaches didn't need that distraction.

Halak is injury prone and inconsistent. And apparently not someone willing to sit on the bench despite being unreliable. A great goalie on his day but not someone I'd lose sleep over.

But let me guess, you don't actually care about Halak but are hyping him up because you want to make Price look bad.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say?

No GM in the NHL would take Halak over Price. Even with his struggles the last 5-6 weeks.

Halak is well insulated in St.Louis but he can't stay healthy/consistant enough to carry the mail. He's lost the #1 job to both Allen and Elliott this year.

Price did not get a lot of help last year and he did well to have solid stats. This year with a lot more help(less shots and better defense) until Emelin got hurt.

I(and Bergevin) would make that Eller-Halak deal again any day and twice on Sundays.

The Islanders, with a healthy Halak, become a playoff threat. Flyers too.
That's all I am saying.

sign halak just for playoff insurance. even if he isnt healthy all season it would still be good if he was healthy for the playoffs.

And how do we go about signing Halak? He's already has a contract next year, with another team.

Besides, think he wants to be a playoff insurance goalie? He spent most of his time here fighting for the starter spot.

Anyone else watching NYR vs Washington ?

What a homer series. Caps are getting eaten alive in the second. Some huge saves by Holtby to keep them in it.

Right... We see a healthy Halak just as much as a confident and dominant Price which is not enough. Halak is a one year wonder and a really good back up.

And people say Price is elite? No... Lundqvist is elite and Price is nowhere near his class. Not a knock on Price, but some people have no bloody clue what an elite goalie is.

No penalties against the Rangers in an elimination game?

Couldn't have been more blatantly obvious then when there were no penalties in Game 7 Bruins vs. Lightning the year the Bruins won the cup.

Price is very good but he is not elite. He is not quite consistent enough to be elite. Price has all the physical tools to be elite though. Just to go back to the Ottawa series....and I know team effort had much to do about it too......but Anderson was more consistent from game to game than Price was. I won't knock Price too much in that series but he could certainly elevate his game further.

Olympics should be great Lundqvist vs Quick vs Rinne/Rask. Canada and Russia (unless Bobrovski repeats his year) are in big trouble goalie wise.
