as much as everyone wants Price to be their franchise guy... Halak's the better goalie.

I've bee biting my tongue for a little while now, but Leino has really underwhelmed me this season. How many goals has he scored, 1?

So what about Carey Price ?

He's cheap (salary cap wise).

In NHL '09, the CPU auto-traded Lebda and Samuelsson to Montreal for Halak for me.

He was better than Osgood.

ya know... i almost wouldn't mind Cheli over Lebs and Meech. would give Big E the chance to play his game, that is mobile/offensive blue-liner.

no chance, Price will be an all-star in this league soon enough

I still think he'll find his game and some consistency

I would move almost anyone to get Price in Detroit, would love to see that

the team needs a regular season goal like curtis Joseph someone to in during the regular season. Not that I am saying Joseph was bad for us but how can ou play d knowing that you cant let a shot hit the net from center ice because it has a 1 in 4 shot of scroring?

meh, over $3.5mil, but i think Montreal has hitched their wagon to him for the future; all i was saying is that IMO Halak's better (and at $750k or so, much cheaper.)

i think everybody agrees Ozzie is an issue. aside from the Sweden game, Howie's been very good. he needs a legit shot for a couple of games to steal the #1 job.

Jesus, you love to jump down people's throats, don't you?

Just because Halak *might* be the better goalie doesn't mean that Price can't be a great goalie too.

There are teams in this league who have two good goalies. I know thats hard to believe, considering we don't even have one good goalie, but it is the case for some teams.

And that's what matters at this point.

You think Babbles will give him the chance after the last couple of goals Osmeh has let in?

Good move by Babcock to pull Osgood early, it had to be done.

Come on, not that bad.

couldn't hurt at this point, could it? either he steadies the ship, or he sinks like Ozzie's sv% and we need to make a move... better to know sooner rather than later, i'd say.

I agree, but does Uncle Mike? I guess we'll just have to wait and find out.

i mis-read capgeek, thought the bonus was on top of the number he had listed. in any event, they're not trading Price.

no, hes a special bread. i think realistically. the kid is 22, compared to a goalie who is 24 or 25. In goalie years, thats a pretty big experience jump.

Yay Howard. Get that man some softer pads to control those rebounds, and we've got a winner.
