I'd probably vote Price but Subban has been outstanding for the most part. Just frustrating how we're using him...

I thought this would be a lot closer and I think it probably deserves to be a lot closer. You think we'd be in last without Price? Well where would we be without Subban?

I'm literally the biggest Subban lover here and I think Price takes this.

It's not about how much Price takes it over Subban that should be reflected in votes, its that Price is the only logical answer here, considering how MT has been treating Subban (and even then Subby has responded amazingly) but Price has been on an other level for a few games and overall he has been our backbone.

Gotta go with Price so far. He's been good enough so far to give the Habs a chance to win any given game and once the forwards get rolling again maybe the competition for who's the best will heat up

I think if we didn't have Subban,the EGG line we would be hurting also....but Price is the last line of defence and with his good and lately great play we would be lost and last.
TB for years has had great offense but no goalie and finished at the bottom....now they have a goalie and are at the top.

1. Price.

2. Markov. He's our PP general, plays on the PK, has insane hockey IQ and is proving to all his detractors he's still one of the best. If only he escaped those damn knee injuries.

3. Subban

For my money it's a coin toss between Subban and Price. Both have been very good. Subban moreso at the beginning and Price moreso lately.

Who's been the best? Cast your vote.
Good thread LG, and a positive one. I voted Gally because I think he has worked extremely hard to maintain his pace.

Of course I am very pleased with Price and Subby also, but these guys are gifted.

Pure best? Of course Price or Subby. And HM to Marky, but I called that this summer. Expected nothing less from him.

Attitude and winning spirit best? Gally.

You can say that for half the teams in the NHL. Most don't have more than three impact players. Where Habs are destitute this year is at forward, until Chucky matures.

It tells a lot about the skaters when the goaltenders have a combined SV% .935 (3rd in NHL after the Bruins and the Maple Leafs) and the team record is still a moderate 10-9-2.

1- Price 90%
2- Gallagher 85%
3- Subban 85%
4- Markov 80%
5- Plekanec 75%
6- Galchenuyk 75%
7- Bournival 75%
8- Eller 70%

I gave a rating at the end of each for imo the score out of 100 they deserve for this first quarter.

This is exactly how I'd have it. The problem is you'd dive below 50% to find my #9.

Price, AINEC.

Subban is up there too, IMO. Therrien better not **** the re-signing process with his ridiculousness.

This. Eller seems like the "weak link" out of them, but has been damn fine.

Eller has been doing the heavy lifting on that line defensively, and has been inconsistent offensively, and is still on pace for 50 points. Part of the solution, not the problem.

...The problem being the only forward on this team on pace for at least 50 points off the EGG line is Plekanec. Bournival is on pace for 40, the rest are producing like grinders.
