What is pathetic is the narrative you are trying to construct.
I dont know why you feed the troll so much. You know he's a hater and a jackass, we know he's one and hell, he probly realizes it himself. No matter what you say, it'll still be the same.

If people just stop giving that kid attention, he'll just fade away.

Price is not safe from cricticism and most of his critics are perfectly rational people with whom i'm sure you'd love debating the subject but sadly, this one guy isnt.

Some people just can't allow other members to have opinions of their own, can they?

I don't agree with Agnostic here. Even though some of the things he says are fundamentaly true, I think he might be a bit harsh in the way he talks about Price. But calling him a jackass and calling his analogies "pathetic" for the sole reason he doesn't agree with your opinion?

Come on guys.

I'm with all of you when saying that price let some soft goals in, but at least I'm able to take a step back and consider it instead of laughing at someone who actually played against him and is considered one of if not the best player in the world.

I'm still not sure he's the best but I will watch him in a new light. Between Crosby and ANY of you guys, He will have more weight on my opinion.
Well said

Last Playoff if we only switch the goalie, the Habs probably win in 4 or 5 games. If Price can't reach his potential in the next 2 years, the Habs should look for a cheaper alternative for the same average performance.
If we switch the goalies the Sens still win.

Anderson saw every shot man. Price was screened most of the time. That's our problem. No big forwards, we don't go to the net enough and our own D doesn't protect the goalie. So yeah, Anderson had a great save percentage... that's what happens when the opposing team lets you see every shot.

Well, Agnostic is a little extreme dude...

It's one thing to not be entirely sold on the guy or to think he's maybe overrated. It's another thing to rave about him incessantly and scream he sucks every time a goal goes in. Agnostic crossed that line a long time ago and I just gave up on him. It's too bad too because before his Price obsession I thought he was actually a half decent poster. Maybe he still is, but I've had him on ignore for a long time now. He's lost his mind when it comes to Price and for the life of me I have no idea why.

Definitely a big year for Carey. By all accounts he is really focused on playing great and making Team Canada. Let's hope we see the results.

Can't defend Carey anymore. I used to defend him. Impossible to do now after last season. I hope he proves me wrong, but my hopes are as low as they can go with him. Might consider trading him while his value is still somewhat there. There are MANY other goalies that can do what he's been doing for us at a way cheaper price.

Not hating on Price but why paying a goalie 6,5M if he can't make safe if he doesnt have a good defense that allow him to see every shots ?

hahaha! Don't take it the wrong way but that last sentence make you look like the biggest blowhard.

I also don't understand fans of a team that continually put their players down. You should encourage, not discourage. Worst type of fans.

And by the way you do not know what needs to change. You are not a gm or a coach, you're just another fan. You don't know any better than any other poster here. An opinion is like an butthole, everybody has one. Stop acting like you know everything.

I, for one, will encourage my team. Do I wish we had bigger players? yup. And they will come eventually. The goalie is by far, the least of my concerns for the team. In the meantime, I will enjoy the hockey.... instead of living in a constantly negative point of view world a lot of you a living in.

I think that's just fair

Also, I don't see the point in trading for another goalie. As I said earlier, whomever plays goalie for this team will suffer the same pressures because of the history of success of it's predecessors

Price has THE toughest job in all of hockey...I can't emphasize this enough
Most people on here have 0 concept of the grooming process that Carey Price has been put through starting at the age of 16. And when he was drafted by the habs, that process was upped to the next level. People say his head is not in games.. I can understand why they'd see that, but playing goalie isn't about being aggressive, it's about being in control. He has to tap into his zen-jedi-mind, as this is the mindset where he finds his game.. and holding onto that consistently at a young age, while learning to be a pro, and learning to deal with the pressures of a hockey mad city is not easy (along with all the other political madness playing in Montreal comes with, language and so on, which, never affected Carey directly, but goalie being a team position, these politics have an indirect affect).

That said, I think Carey Price will be golden this year. All the alchemy of his makeup has settled, the components of his chemistry are ready to transform him. The factors this year such as the Olympics, the transition from a circus-show that was the habs organization up until last year, all of it, he's going to prove a lot of people wrong. He also got married this summer, which, many of you guys don't realize, is a huge step for any man to take. If all his problems are mental, then I think we have a recipe for success here.

And when this happens, the haters will find other things to hate, other reasons to be miserable, other excuses for not being happy/satisfied with the things they love.

I was hard on Price last year and yes Game 1 I blame him for it but games 2 and 4 especially in Ottawa he kept us in them. Gave us a chance in games 4 before they got that goal that should have been refused and changed everything. Budaj 1st shot in OT went in and game 5 we won't even talk about it

It seems to me that what needs to be more consistent is the team in front of Price. To me, Price is not playing under the level of expectations. There are a handful of games you can blame Price in. But even in those games, the team in front of him brought its usual lackluster self to the match.

There are some days we get to see a great team game. Most of the time it's Price and "the others".

I still can't believe Price is being blamed for a playoff series where he only shouldered two of the 4 losses required to be eliminated- not to mention that he played extremely well in games 2 and 4. If that doesn't scream agenda, I don't know what does.

Price's play will be excused for another few years. I'll give him 2 more seasons before I completely give up on him.

I'm wondering when Price is going to no longer be considered a prospect goalie who is developing into a superstar.... I'm personally tired of hearing the old argument that he is still young and we need to be patient. Should we wait until he is 30 years old ?

Come on guys.
Oh cmon, he's obviously trolling. I've talked with my fair share of people who didnt like Price and i dont happen to believe that they're all jackasses. He's not even argumentating properly, just shouting his hate over every single argument that's brought forward to him.

Even if he wasnt trolling (and he is), his hatred of Price runs so deep that discussing the subject with him would still be futile. Obviously, no one is going to change his mind and he's not willing to partake in the discussion in a moderate manner.

So again, what's the point or answering his posts? People might as well just leave him alone.

I don't think he is a superstar .... I think his name makes him a superstar. I think THAT is the truth.

IMO Price is pretty much a league average starting goalie, who hopefully becomes more consistent as he ages. Goalies age differently - Lunqvist wasn't really King Henrik until around 26-27 - but that's no sure thing. Here's hoping.

I don't agree at all. Anderson had to fight through screens on a lot of shots and he did. He stopped ALL the easy ones and a ton of hard ones. Price only stopped had ones in game 2, and let in easy ones in all other games.

The whole "no traffic in front of Anderson" and "our defense was brutal and that's why Price sucked" are myths propagated on here for the last 4 months, not created from reality. Go look at the video of those games, in all 4 Ottawa wins, Anderson makes numerous huge saves in the 1st while Habs have a clear edge in play.

Agreed, the only thing I'd blame Carey for is the 3rd period of game 1 which I thought he needed to be better and make those saves. Other then that he was solid like you said in both games 2 and 4 and in Game 3 no one showed up
