The real worry: a major hole in Carey Price's game

Forget the « gesture ». Forget the obvious lack of maturity. Forget the drinking and partying. Forget the rumours of being involved with the wrong girl, getting beaten up and having to walk around Montreal surrounded by bodyguards. Forget the Youtube video of Carey vomiting in a swimming pool. Let’s call all those “youth mistakes”.

The real and major preoccupation has to be a major hole in Carey Price’s game which Boston’s advance scouting deserves a lot of credit for finding, to the delight of the Bruins’ snipers who had a party just shooting the puck at that hole and scoring almost at will.

The hole is on his stick side, anywhere from 1 foot high to the top of the net. Most of Boston goals went in right there and it was obvious that this is where most of their shots were directed.

Whether he can fix this hole or not is what will dictate the type of career he has.

The rest will be quickly forgotten.

See, that's what's funny. Just like other posters said, everyone bashed Price for his ''non existent glove hand'', but we just discovered he had no stick side as well!

Also, Price puking on a youtube video? Share if you have it. We already have picture of Stewart throwing up as well.

I don't know how much of a "major hole" it is, but it was very obvious that Boston was going blocker side the whole series.

pLafleur.....this IMO is your best post EVER!! And one of the most entertaining and accurate posts I've seen here in eons.

Agree on all fronts...except, I don't forget or forgive Price for his lack of professionalism OVERALL.

dont know if its worth a reply.. still watch the goals he let in again, it was perfect shots or perfect plays no goaltenders in this league would have stopped..

You can say a goaltender has been weak when the puck seems to pass through his body, what hasnt been the case for Carey in the Bruins serie..

Everyone having a bit of time to take his shot will target the blocker side of a goaltender, but most of the time it happens so fast that you dont have the time to think, you let your instinct go..

The real worry is that we don't stop the REAL problem which is a team that was 24th in shots against. Our defense stinks. Our backchecking is non-existent

Exactly...yet Price HAD to steal us that series, otherwise he's useless according to some fans.
Truth is, with all our injuries, we didn't have a chance.

Hopefully next year the number 1 goalie(no matter who that is) earns his keep!

Upper stick side is the weak point of pretty much every single goalie...

Are we supposed to forget that you have absolutely zero hockey experience? Forget that you have zero experience playing goalie? Forget that you have zero experience coaching goaltenders?

Because if we forget all that we might think of your point as a valid one. But since I'm not going to forget that, it's obviousy you are pulling **** out of your ass. Those goals happened because of SUPER weak defence and because Price followed Melanson's stupid coaching tip to stay in the blue paint.

Anyone can snipe blocker side on me when I'm in net too, when they have as much time and space as they want to get the perfect shot off.

He probably just saw the nice goalie schema that RDS seems to dust off come playoff time.

Poor positioning...and not seeing the puck properly. He's a big goalie...if he's sound positionally, he should close to NEVER let a goal short side. Been the golden rule of thumb since time began.

Last year it was his weak glove side against Philly and this year it was a weak blocker side against Boston. What's it going to me next year? A weak five hole against your #*#?

I'm just kidding..

Maybe he just 21 and needs time to develop... I'll be worried at 26, not 21...

Bingo. As a guy who has played in net too I have to agree

I think folks forget that if a goalie has to steal a lot of games with spectacular saves, somebody else left him holding the bag.

Too bad the NHL didn't track scoring chances as opposed to just shots. It would be more obvious statistically. The time and space you mention gives the shooter a chance to do more than just shoot the puck on net.

we give up way too many shots and too many scoring chances too I think

And what if there is another forward to the other side and they have been going side to side freely on you all night. There is such a thing as sound defensive positional play too.
