Right, so all of this discussion of "will Carey re-sign" or "is he destined to fail in Montreal?" takes away from one simple point. We need him to succeed if our team is going to go anywhere. We need to give him the best environment within which to succeed. A little negative attention isn't a bad thing because everybody has their own opinions, but we can all admit that the perception of Carey Price has got out of control. If we're going to do anything as a team this year it will be with Carey Price having a good season. Thus, regardless of what your thoughts about him are, get behind him so we can have a good season. If things weren't so bad, it wouldn't matter. But it's getting out of control now. When kids are saying they "hate Carey Price" simply because it seems "everybody hates Carey Price" so it's the right thing to do, we know it's gone too far. If we wanna go anywhere, we have to back Price. That's all there is to it.
This thread will probably not last as long as the "Will Carey be destined to fail in Montreal?" thread. I urge you to ask why that is and challenge yourselves to keep it going. It does matter. Those same kids and other fans feel it's the right thing to do. Change it for the good of your club.
Mods, please leave this open. We need some neutrality on the board. Thanks.
Honestly I like him and want to give him all the time he needs to succeed. To me he's always been montreals goalie of the future and I think he has all the talent to do it but for god sakes Carey and your St***D ********N Agent get your heads out of your ***** and sign a contract It's not like you've proven you deserve to be anything more then a back up yet.
Ok that said GO CAREY!! hope you have a great season and lead this team to great things in the future. We all know you can do it which is why we hate you so ****** much sometimes!
Am I the only person on these forums who doesn't have 100% faith in Price but still backs him and thinks it's stupid to hate on him?
With some of the comments I hear people saying, you would think that they think Carey is intentionally trying to play badly.
He's a good goalie and he's trying, give the guy a chance even if you're like me and you have your doubts. He's our guy so show him a little more respect imo.
Exactly. If it's just friendly banter that's fine but it's gotten out of control. You can have your doubts but still support him because he plays for your team. You want your team to do well and, without a confident goaltender, you're shooting yourself in the foot. You'd get from that that it makes sense to help him be confident. If things are getting out of control you do something about it.
Totally behind him. He's our #1 goalie right now, and he has all the tools to succeed. I hope he'll get a massive support from the rest of the team to help him through the rough stretch at the beginning of the season, if he can start getting good results all will be fine.
