This season...Carey Price v. James Reimer

Who has been the better goaltender for their respective teams this year? My knee jerk reaction would be Price, but after looking at the numbers I'm not so sure. There has been a lot of discussion on this subject regarding the possibility of TOR and MON meeting in the first round of the playoffs and one of the advantages brought up many times for the Habs is their goaltending. But do they really have the advantage of Price over Reimer?

Some stats:

Record

Price 19-9-4
Reimer 16-5-5

GAA

Price 2.36
Reimer 2.46

Sv%

Price 9.12
Reimer 9.22

SA
Price 861
Reimer 793

GA
Price 76
Reimer 62

Reimer is playing much better than price this season as evident of tonight's game.

Look, I know leaf fans are happy about the way you guys have done well against the Habs but Price is all world elite....Reimer seems pretty solid at times...but Price is in the top five easily!

Price is overrated... He has never had elite numbers consistently like Hank. That being said a goalies prime is age 27-30 so he is not at his best yet

Well apparently the habs say they have better defense. Yet Reimer and Price's numbers are similar.

So Reimer is better this season.

(I know the leafs have better D, but I'll play along)

I'd still prefer Price. I love Reims though. Knew he had it in him.

We all would because Price is more proven, over a large sample size. But I think it's fair to say Reimer has outplayed him in this half-season.

I wouldn't say MUCH better. They are close which is why I though this would make a good (interesting) poll. No doubt Reimer play MUCH better TONIGHT though!

Price has been equal to or if not outplayed by Budaj this year. I hate to say it but he is our biggest weakness this season. Reimer wins this poll for sure.

If Price was actually as good as Lundqvist we would be challenging Chicago for #1 overall...no joke.

Thought Carey Price was 29 or something, hes even younger then Schneider.

Reimer > Price (this season)

Best thing to happen to Reimer was getting rid of Francois Allaire. Just an awful coach for him as he took away his ability to battle in net.

To be honest, I always saw Reimer as a shot blocker and not a save maker, but he's transformed his game this year and really improved. Happy for him, he seems like a solid kid and will be paying a close eye on his playoffs.

Reimer has been the better goalie this season, but its been less than 30 games.

Carey Price is the better goalie. James Reimer has had the better year

Tough question... really comes down to what you consider the team's needs to be.

If you want a goalie who's going to give you a chance to win every game, James Reimer would be the call, with the caveat being that he's not going to steal any for you either. If you want a goalie who will steal you a few games, then Carey Price is your call, with the caveat being that he's prone to blowups and costing you games.

If you want a goalie who's going to win more of the games he plays in, James Reimer is the call. If you want a goalie who's going to play in more games, then Carey Price is the call.

Carey actually hasn't had a bad year. His stats look bad because he's had like 4 games where he's been REALLY bad and got pulled. He's been fairly consistent. Reimer has been very good too though.

I used to think this as well. But it seems that "scrambling" is part of his style. You might say he is a scrambling-butterfly goalie. He has very good instincts and has really good lateral movement. But it does make him "look shaky" at times. One area he really needs to work on is his rebound control but I think it has been better over the last several games. He may make you feel nervous but his record speaks for itself.
