I would never agree on booing a guy for a 2-1 loss or will never agree that at the first game when the puck is drop for the first time some in the higher up will right away start screaming Halak, Halak

but if in couple of games in a row he let one softie a game, and mostly, like it as seem this season, if the team underperform when he's in net.... he will be the scape goat...

I have a feeling Price will receive a huge ovation at opening night

Price is a MASTER of bad luck goals. He can make the biggest save only to let in a soft deflection through the legs on the next shot.

As well, how many times does Price let in a good goal? "He had no chance on that one, it was the d-man's fault!" etc. Halak could bail us out on lots of those opportunities to keep his team in the game.

Either way, I got sick of Price when he stunk it up in the playoffs and was happy to have some consistent goaltending with Halak. Price can't handle the pressure in Montreal and Halak could handle it and we traded him away.

I hope Price plays well to save his sanity because if he stinks it up he's really going to enjoy the shower of boos the fans will give him when he doesn't play well.

Mark my words, if Price is 9th or 10th overall in the league next year in GAA and SV%, some people on here will still ***** and boo (not necessarily you, just saying)... And THAT'S the problem with a lot of Mtl fans. They feel entitled to it just because they pay. No one is forcing you to go to the games. If you hate a player so much, either take a few years off from hockey, or cheer for another team. You don't have to agree with all the decisions, no one does, but to actually pray for the team's or a specific player's failure is beyond ridiculous (again, not necessarily you, but you know there are a lot of people here who wish just that).


PS Your example of the food, this situation is like the people who yell at a waiter/waitress and make a scene because their steak is overcooked....
That's why i said i would talk to the manager and complain, i would not make a scene over it... then again if i paid 300$ for a steak, i would expect it to be like i ask, and like the Price situation, the person to complain about would be the chef (or Gauthier) instead of the waiter (Price) but one is there and the other one isn't

Halaks stunk up his fair share of goals, he just isnt a big target like price was for whipping. Remember the colorado game when they lost and price made some ridiculous save and then a rebound save because a dman went to the corner trying to fight someone that hammered Gomez and the 3rd one got put in yeah Price got blamed. Ridiculous isnt it? Thats why price never gave up a good goal unless it was 2 on 0 or something he got blamed, even then he would have had to make the first save.

But not being able to talk to the chef or manager does not give you the right to insult and berrate a waiter... just like if you're POed at PG, you have no right to take it on Price or any other player.

But hey we've seen similar threads before. How many people on here wanted to boo Gomez out of town before he even stepped foot in the Bell Centre because they hated the trade?? How many people wanted to boo Gill out of town last summer??

Good ol' Habs fans!!!

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.
Enemy of the team? are we in a war or something? you know what, i'm a hockey fan who lives in Montreal, i will never dislike a player or a team cause they are not Montreal... If Carey does is job, i will not like him more but will have nothing to say, if he doesn't, since i don't like the guy, it will be easier to fall on his head... That being said, Go Habs Go

If you go to a restaurent and they change something about you're steak you might complain one time but if you continue to return to that restaurant and ask again and again for you're old steak maybe the chef will tell you to go somewhere else and on top of that that restaurant have like 500 people waiting at the door to take you're table.

that is what true fans are about, and that builds the kid's desire to dominate.
Hopeless in a way because some folks boo under the stupidest circumstances. In any case I agree with what you are saying

Booing because of things beyond the kid's control is mindless. So booing him because Halak got traded falls under that category.

The kid has behaved extremely well through all of this. Zero complaints. Heard nothing from his agent (who is his agent?). Time to support the kid and give him a fair shake in thick and thin. Then again you could say that about a lot of players

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.
If Price plays like absolute garbage, then I can't fault you for booing him because I'd probably be tempted to also. But I hope that you'll cheer him if he plays well.

are you telling me that you've never booed or criticize any Habs player in your life if they didn't play to the level you expected?

Because he's the Habs goalie, even if he plays like crap, we are not to talk about if or let it be known?

This year, some people were ******** on Price, others on Halak, but since Halak is gone, all hail Price? Let's just hope his new backup is really bad so we don't have to go back to a ??? vs Price debate all year long

So, if they traded Price instead and Jaro started "letting in a couple softies that deflect off 5 legs and the kitchen sink to go in", would you be starting a Carey Carey Carey chant?

And why would i gave my table for one of the 500 waiting if i got problem with the steak, but not the appetizers, the wine, the dessert, the ambiance etc... Damn, i like to eat at the Canadiens, and if the chef can provide what he promises and there is no other restaurant in my town, i shall continue to go there and complaint if they cannot offer me what the menu promises...

(By the way, really like the analogy...)

So we want a bad backup to avoid controversy? What are you talking about?

How about moving forward and simply boo a player when he deserves it and leave it at that.

Frankly I don't boo players for any team I support. It makes sense on no level. Booing the collective group when appropriate makes more sense. Even then that is rare as far as I am concerned. It has to be something extreme.

Did you read what I wrote? I specifically said, if Price DOES **** the bed, then yes people can complain. But to start booing Price, before the season even started, because you are pissed at PG is dumb as hell...

We're in a war for the cup. And once or twice a year, Halak is going to be an obstacle to get those extra points to finish higher in the standings.

Also, I like this move, but you don't, and you're putting the blame on an innocent player. You have as much right to boo Tom Pyatt for this trade as you do Carey Price.

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.....
You're going to "boing" him and not take it easy on him? That sounds disgusting...

And who talk about booing Price before the season or if he play's well?

this thing is going everywhere... all i started to say is that i'm a Halak fan, and if Price does not live up to the promises, i have the right to boo him if i feel like it, responding to the opening thread saying to tell the people who would boo Price to shut up... My point being, people have the rights to boo if they want too and the other fans should just take care of their own business

what the heck is this, i'm not blaming Price, i just don't like him, i will not boo him for the sake of booing him, i will boo is performance if they are subpar compare to what we could have expected from Halak....

why would i boo a 4 line player... oh yeah, he as the same impact as the # 1 goalie on the biggest franchise in hockey.... If Carry would have had the work ethic that Tom Pyatt shows since we saw him for the first time, i probably would not dislike him so much

Ok but if you are the only one to complain the chef won't take you in consideration. And if half of the clients are not happy with the new steak they will probably say I like the appetizers,wine,dessert too much I can live with the new steak.

But if many costumers dislike the taste of the steak, because the steak is not as good as the one provided before that everyone like, yeah they will like the appetizers, wine, dessert but they will still want the restaurant to provide a better main dish...

that said in Montreal, people will complain about the steak and the will call it BC AAA beef best in town after three good serving...

Coaches constantly praise Price for his work ethic... again, the comparisons with Halak... it's not his fault Halak isn't our goalie anymore. If you boo a player, you boo the team, simple as that.

Anyways, I'm done wasting my time, I won't lower myself to arguing with sour grapes over here.
