As a Halak fan who hasn't been to please with Price as of late, I still think the kid will bounce back and stupid fans should just shut their ****ing mouths. He's young.

It's not really Carey's fault but I wish hell to break loose just so the management can be in the spotlight and Pierre Gauthier to be exposed as a terrible GM, just as most of us expected.
Pretty sure Gainey gave his input.

let's support the kid, don't let fans boo him, show some class and support ...

that is what true fans are about, and that builds the kid's desire to dominate.
Personally, I'm not into "booing" players - especially young players playing any position.

But don't you worry.............as long as he is wearing a Montreal uniform, Carey Price will never have to earn anything or be accountable for poor play....the Habs have handed him everyrhing since he has arrived in Montreal!

Good Luck Pierre Gauthier and especially Jacques Martin..........I think you are both going to need a lot of it!

If you want to tell me to shut up, i'm the 6'2 - 335 pounds guy in 120 EE 6 or 7

That being said, i will boo Pierre Gauthier much harder, than i would Carey, it's not his fault if a wannabee GM traded one of the fans biggest hero and put on Price a ton of pressure he didn't deserve...

Some people for no particular reason were just hating Latendresse, i feel the same toward Price.

You can't like every player on a team
.....
Thats what I find stupid. I've never booed a player on the Habs, I don't understand it. I have always and will always cheer for the Crest on the jersey, not for just a particular name or number on the back. It's not Carey's fault that he was traded, it was managements decision (could be an awful one but it was theirs to make).

I loved Komisarek when he was a Hab now I hate him because of the Leaf on the front of his jersey.

I hate Lucic and the B on his jersey, but if he somehow became a Hab then I would love him because of it.

I think that it's bull, I'm a fan of the Habs before any particular player.

I think that fans at the game should be patient and realistic, and at least give Carey some wiggle room (i.e. if he has a couple bad games at home early in the season, don't boo him for that alone), but if Carey ends up having a year no better than last season (or, Heaven forbid, worse than last year) then I honestly can't fault fans for booing him late in the season during bad games at that point.

Next season really is 'put up or shut up' time for Carey Price and his most fervent supporters, imo. It's time. He has loads of NHL experience, and he's going to be 23 next year. The organization chose him over the much more successful Halak, based on his potential and his considerable NHL experience up to this point.

Well, now it's time for Price to either sink or swim. The organization has been plenty patient with him, and is clearly giving him every opportunity.

At some point, he either turns out to be the guy that so many folks here thinks he will be, or he turns out to be at least a partial bust. A partial bust because Natey is right: he's always going to be a NHLer. Even a flakey Price is good enough for that.

If Price is really the great franchise goalie that many people here believe that he is, then we'll see that next season.

Lol, you're the dude who told everyone here that Price was doing coke in the Old Port all the time and that you had PICTURES TO PROVE IT.

Why am I not surprised to read this from you then?
And where are those pictures?

And now that Halak is traded, you want to trade Price? How does that make sense?

Yeah boo the guy for losing 2-1 on a goal that hamrlik bowled him over for and leaving staal open at the side of the net, while getting 3rd star. Completely justified, or the buffalo game where the team folded like a cheap tent in the last 3 minutes.

He didnt get booed when he wasnt playing well, he was getting booed at the player intros.

Booing a guy for getting a 3rd star selection is incredibly stupid, yes. That was truly dumb.

But this is how I look at it: The Bell Center Habs fans (i.e. the fans that actually attended the Habs home games) clearly showed a preferance for Halak over Price. Gauthier decided to buck that, deal the obvious fan favorite, and go with the potential of Price. Well, it's only natural for the fans to be a bit pissed over that. You can only shout "Fifth overall pick potential!" so long before it has to start amounting to something tangible out on the ice.

If Price bounces back, great. Awesome. I really hope that he does bounce back, for everybody's sake (especially his).

But if he doesn't bounce back, and goes on to have a bad season, he's going to be booed, and I can't really blame the Bell Center fans because they made it pretty clear that Halak was their man. It's unfortunate for Price, but that's just the way it is.

Doesnt even matter most people arent even giving him a chance, they are going to relentlessly boo him, you think they will wait til the inevitable bad goal goes in?

I tend to agree it's not his fault, but he has the weight of this team on his shoulder and he must not fail or else it's him and not Gauthier that will suffer the consequences.... ROY was booed, Theodore was booed, so if he sucks, people will boo him...

I have problem with the hypocracy of a lot of habs fans on this board, they would not booed or would insult people who say they will or might, but they criticizes strongly every decision made by the organisation that don't feel good to them...

I can believe the superiority complex some people have on this board, many, many people are angry against this trade, and if Price doesn't perform to the level expect and people at the Bell Center boo him... People here keeps saying that they are wrong like if the people in here were so much better... Don't be fouled, If Carey doesn't play to the level Gauthier expect him, and that is some high level if he was willing to trade a fan favorite and the guy who had a lot to say for our team reaching the semi's, a lot of people will tear him a new one in here, but they will still have the nose high on people booing at the Bell Center which is basically the same, instead that they are paying big dollars to do so...

I realize it wasnt for me I was just trying to get an actual discussion going about it. If price ***** the bed (sub 900 tonnes of soft goals) by all means, but if hes playing at a respectable level (.912 is respectable in my opinion) booing is just ********. Halaks value could never be higher really, good time to trade him because if price overtook him next year he isnt worth much. Sometime the team has to take the blame for a loss and the only time that was true this year was the nashville game and san jose game(in prices case).

When Price starts letting in a couple softies that deflect off 5 legs and the kitchen sink to go in I will be there to start the "JARO...JARO" chants so he remembers what management gave up to make him the #1 in Montreal.

IF your not happy with the team, GO CHEER FOR ST LOUIS
Okay wise guy, let say that after the first 10 games, Carey play's 8, he's 2-5-1 with a GAA of .316 and a save% of 880, that Schultz is in Hamilton (where he would be anyway) and Eller is the reincarnation of Playoff Pouliot what are you going to do? if you're not at the Bell Center you cannot boo, that is for sure... will you be here criticizing Eller, Price and Gauthier? Most likely... so give it a rest...

Haha I dont think anything needs to be said here, although I dont believe you know what a soft goal is. Bad luck isnt a softy.

let's support the kid, don't let fans boo him, show some class and support ...

that is what true fans are about, and that builds the kid's desire to dominate.

Price will be 23 next year and it will be his 4th year with the team.....no room for anymore excuses!!!!

If he plays like garbage, I will booo him to no end.....he was drafted high for a reason, the guy has obvious talent but he needs to get his head into it and play hockey. I hope he turns things around and actually tries to earn his #1 job, but we'll have to wait and see how he does next season.

i get your point and it would be perfectly logical if he was the only options, but Halak was there, was the alternative, and as proven more in pro hockey now then Price... that being said, i concede that he's not all responsible for the situation, but since we can boo GM...

By the way people in here were really not cool with Latendresse since day one and going further... where were you to tell people to give him a year of experience? (not saying you were dishing Lats, just asking...)

How easy is it to ease in to your job when idiots are telling him how much he sucks?

It may be his fourth year, but he still needs a full year as a starter, he's still fresh, and people like you make it extremely hard to make rookie mistakes, which he'll eventually learn from.

Missing an easy shot or being out of position and letting in a flukey goal is the same as letting in soft goals. Bad goals deflate the team and he needs to be better at that.
Nobody is perfect, but Halak was rarely caught out of position and a lot of pucks hit him that he didn't see or that were deflected because he was in good position. Price needs to learn to use his big frame and not move around the crease too much and get caught out of position. If he can learn to stay in position and square to the puck, he'll do just fine.

Gainey is only keeping Price because of where he was drafted. Not saying Halak is better but c'mon how about Carey's "great" series against Boston last year and Halak's dominance up until they played Philly...

If you search my post history, you can probably find me at the beginning of the season expecting 20 goals from Lats, and never once bad mouthing him. I wasn't sad when he was traded, but I wasn't jumping for joy either. I also didn't expect a full power forward at 22, that's for sure.

Anyways, Halak has nothing to do with Price. It's not his fault that he gets forced in the ring of fire. He's our goalie now, and by no fault of his. We have to live with it, and support him, because Jaro ain't coming back. He's an enemy to the team right now, and either you can support Price, or the next few seasons are going to be rough.
