That, folks, is how to turn a PGT into a Price vs Halak pissfest.
you're missing one.

markov needs to be better for us. he is pathetic, couldnt even score on a breakaway and give us a **** **** ****...winning goal. why did some want this guy to be captain?

added swear words for an anger affect.

You guys should have watched L'Anti-Chambre on RDS. They were coming up with their trade ideas. PJ Stock came up with something like the Habs getting Carter, Colbrun and Hartnell for Price, Plekanec and 2 first round picks.

The Price lovers are as annoying as the Price haters. Why is there not a median with people who think Price is a good goalie but not the ****ing savior of this team? It's only Price lovers and haters on this board.

If this team ever expects to make noise, like it or not it starts with the goaltender. Big saves give the rest of the team confidence to play more agressively and it grows from there. As long as Price OR Halak keep letting in those heartbreakers, we will always be an on the bubble teM no matter who is playing in front of them.

And oh yeah - Price blows. (sorry, just disappointed)
Aw **** maybe next time we should just lose in regualtion so our goalie would have only given up 3 goals and by your logic that means he played well.

I see you're point BH, but what if your goaltender lets in 4 goal. But easily saved about 4 others with great saves?

Price wasn't great tonight, I don't think anyone will argue that. But he did give the team a chance to win tonight , which is pretty much all you can ask of your goalie.

And your saying Price didn't make any big saves during the game? The real problem is that the team can't be allowing this many good scoring chances. No goalie is going to stop all of them.

It's really simple, you limit the scoring chances, you limit the goals. I don't know why people don't get this. I don't understand this mentality that a goalie is going to be perfect all the time or else he is no good. It's just stupid because it is not realistic.

Halak and Price have similar stats. Halak has let in 4+ goals 8 times this year, Price has done it 4 times.

What the rangers game and tonights game should prove is that so long as the team in front doesnt play with a 60 minute effort, you can have a brick wall in front of the net and we would still lose.

Why can't people get this through their heads. You give a team enough scoring chances, they are bound to go in and the habs are allowing far too many.

The problem is that the team continues to be mediocre. It's that simple.

Actually that's part of what's good and bad about the Habs board. We have so many passionate fans, that the debates can become intense. Unfortunately that passion also blinds us, which makes it hard for either side to understand reason.

As much as I love Price, I will call him out when he is bad...but we have to recognize he got us a point tonight in a game we didn't deserve one.

Everytime we lose a game, it has to be Price's fault and if not, then Halak.

We lose a game we should have won, and the goaltender is to blame? No. We played 20min, of hockey, and ultimately payed the price. If we could play the way we played in third, during the whole game, im convinced we would have a W right now.

It feels like most people on this board, are just waiting for Price to make a mistake in order to jump on him, same thing for Halak. In this loss, Carey is the least of my worries. Seeing JM put Gill and Mara in overtime is what wories me. Seeing this team play 5 on 5 worries me. And seeing JM desperatly trying to find a winger for the first line, to no avail is what worries me. Our goaltenders are not the problem and if people don't realize that after 52 games, something seriously has gone wrong.

Looking forward to Friday's game, wondering which team will show up? The team that played in the first so badly or the team that dominated in the third.

1)It was at the hashmarks
2)Perfect shots exist
3)Watch other goalies play to because you will be shocked on how many weak goals they let in by your standards.

Maybe it's just me, but the tone of most discussions around here seem like a bunch of people yelling rather than actually talking.

That's the problem with Price though as he plays well but then bang, a weak goal there, another weak goal there. And let's face it even if he played good, he didn't play great in my opinion, even if we forget the 4 goals. It wasn't unreal Price tonight, making miraculous saves.

The thing is, he sees it in an absolute way. It's like saying killing is unacceptable whatever the reason. If he let's in 4 goals every game, there may be a problem, but, otherwise, you need to look at all the goals individually.

I totally agree with you KG. Price wasn't fantastic tonight, but if our team would have came out firing in the first period instead of turning it on late in the 3rd. We wouldn't be having this discussion about Price letting in 4 goals.

The fact that NEITHER of our goalies seem to win much vs quality teams should settle the goalie debate. THe team is average at best.

This pretty much summarizes the game perfectly. Couldn't say it any better
