I'm not sure what his competition was, but nevertheless!

Pfff...Price would have won Slovakia's Platinum Puck Award.







Jokes aside, I like Halak's gear. I like the swagger of an all white equipment. Seems pro.

Wow - how about people try praising and congratulating Halak - instead of trying to come up with negatives of Price or his competition?

For **** sakes.

By the way - Slovakia also has Jan Lasak and Jarsoslav Janus, who had good seasons in other leagues.

- - - - -

Good job by Jaro - good season last year and was very deserving of the award. He's going to get an awesome shot at the Olympic games against all-star teams - let's see what he can do.


PS. The new gear is sick, but I'm a huge fan of white for goalies equipment.

And he'd also be hands down the Montreal Canadiens best goalie if he was ever given equal opportunity

Any competition for the starters role in Vancouver? Or does Halak have it all but wrapped up?

Price = size and talent for sure. But Halak has twice the quickness and exactly 27.43 times more mental toughness to be a real top goalie. Everybody knows goaltending is 90% mental..

That's like Kopitar being named the best NHLer in Slovenia....he is the only one so there is no competition!

When Halak has the competition of Budej and WJC level goalies compared to that of Price who has to be compared to Broduer, Luongo, Turco, Mason, Ward and others I think there is a "healthier" level of competition than that Halak has to face.



Nuff said.
