At this point I'd love to see Price and Halak traded for a bag of pucks just so the mouth breathers on both sides get an important lesson on not ruining everyone else's good time.

Seriously, they're both good young goalies. Criticizing specific goals that are let in is fine, but constant criticism of one or the other (with the justification that you're doing it to balance the other side's criticism of your choice) adds nothing to the discussion other than more verbal diarrhea.

There are very few moments when you get meaningful comments from players about how they feel for one another, and Gomez is more likely to tell it like it is, but I got the impression that Gorges is a guy who is well respected.

When the guy blocks a slapshot with his head in a critical game I guess that statement is totally redundent but good to hear nevertheless.

You need to wake up from dream land if you think Montreal is ninth in the conference

There will always be a debate doesn't matter the names on the backs of the sweaters.

Ken Dryden won 6 cups in 8 years and was practically booed into retirement. If you replay the New Year's Eve game against Red Army you can hear the boos.

So many goaltending experts, or so they believe.

What a win!

5 d-men and the team's 3 best goalscorers injured and we beat the best team in the league. Anyone complaining about this win is probably asking for too much.

I remember when they asked Kostopoulos last season, if we needed another captain, who would he pick, and without hesitation he said Gorges. This guy seems to have great leadership, and we already see the character and strenght of will on the ice

Shame on Price for not being able to shut out the best offense in the league which averages 3.98 goals per game. Trade that bum.

I don't know what you were watching, but the puck doesn't touch his stick until his skates touch the line or close (which is how they operate).

I have never seen a habs 'fan' fight so hard for us to lose, I think it is safe to say that if it were Halak in nets you would not be bringing this up.

Alex Ovechkin, the Great Eight, after scoring a hat trick against MA Fleury, failed to score a goal against Carey Price. That's not a big surprise. In four games against the Habs this season--all with Price in goal--Ovechkin scored a total of one goal. Price can boast of winning two of the four games against the Caps, who might be the Habs' first round opponents in the playoffs. Since the Habs have completed their season's series against the Caps, Jaro Halak won't get to face them. I'm sure the Magic Slovak was bitterly disappointed at not having the opportunity of facing Ovechkin. Maybe he'll get to do so in the Olympics (poor man).

Montreal has more points than the Flyers , Lightning and Bruins. Winning percentage only counts at the end of the season when we've all played the same number of
games. You can skew it any way you want, but we are in 6th.

Dude, both of the guys skates are 2 feet inside the zone when he touched the puck. Go to NHL.com check it out. If you don't see that then you can't see.

Even Mcguire and Miller confirmed Lapierre was offside. See the Caps reaction on the play, the players gave up on it.

We're having a discussion about the rule, I am trying to understand the officials interpretation of the rules. It's called learning. Those that think it's some campaign to make the win illegitimate are childish and obtuse .

All I can say is grow the hell up and stop being so paranoid. If you aren't capable of seeing the guys feet inside the attacking zone it's YOU that has an agenda. Geez.

He was a beast last night. I lost track how many times he handled Ovie one on one. As McGuire would say "He sure has a big stick".

Here's my thing with Price, maybe others don't feel this way but I do.

I honestly cringe/get nervous on *every* routine shot that comes his way. I've just watched soooo many games where he lets in the big softies that have no business going in. To be fair Halak has probably let a few of these in as well, but I don't think he lets them in with the frequency that Price does.

With Halak, I have no cringe/nervous reflex at all while watching the game.

The other problem is Price's puck handling. Why the hell does he have to dangle with the puck like he's Datsyuk? Just stop the puck and give it to your defensemen. I swear half the time the defense is confused as to where Price is going to pass the puck.

I think the team plays tight when Price is in net and a lot more relaxed when Halak is in net.

Helmets are for wuss...

It's funny now that we all accept the importance of a helmet now (and of course goalie mask), while in the 60s-70s it was almost considered an aberration.

In 20 years, everyone will wear visors and we'll laugh at Cherry to have suggested it was a proof of weakness.

I thought Price handled the puck really well last night and handled routine shots solidly. His rebound control was great. I think Price's puck handling and rebound control sets him apart from Halak and most other goalies in the league. Having said that, he has let in some softies, probably more than Halak. Price definitely has things to work on, but he has tools that set him apart.

They could barely lift the puck with those 10 pound lumber poles they called hockey sticks back then.

Didja know that in early hockey, ie like the 1920s they weren't even allowed to make forward passes?

He's let in 2 real softies this year how is that ssooooo many?

He helps the team more by moving the puck up or out than just giving it to his defensemen. Brodeur does the same thing, that's why he is among the top puckhandling NHL goalies.

On the contrary I find the team pays more attention to defense with Halak there, they seem too relaxed with Price and leave wide open players.

Double screened shots from the point in the top corner are weak to alot of people.
As for the demeanor of the players you guys both said different things and people will interpret it to suit which ever goalie they like.
