While i really don't care about him mentioning this, if it indeed is the fact. The thing that bothers me is his selective number 42. Seems he picked up a number to maximize Price's failures. How about 56? or 22? or 30? get my drift? it's an arbitrary number. Count a season, half a season, etc. don't go over two seasons and pin point exactly where you wanna start counting from and where you wanna end your count. That to me is the BS trick he pulled.
It happens all the time, it shows a trend of a team or player. Ever hear of random team is 3-9-1 in their last 13 games, why not just say their record for the first half? Why? because it shows a trend for the team, that's why you say it. To quantify how good/bad a team/player has done lately. It's usually started when the awesome/sucking began. BS or not, 42 games is almost a full season for goalies and it shows a serious slide for Price.
