No Vezina for Price

http://www.ckac.com/hockey/nouvelles...ina-72083.html


I know that there has been alot of good goalies, but I think that Price was one of them who should at least be nomminated.

I mean, Thomas had a great team in front of him and so did Luongo...

Thath leaves: Rinne, Lundqvist and Price...

Price finished with more wins and lead his to team to a 6th spot and not to a 8th spot like Lundqvist...

I am really, but really disappointed by the GM's ( I dont know who votes on this )

Thomas the likely winner, Rinne and Henrik the other nominees... I think this is the consensus that you'll find around the league.

Carey had a nice season. Honorable mention. I'd be more concerned about how he plays in the playoffs in his own building if I were a MTL fan.

wow, that's too bad, but probably good for us and for Carey.... keep the ego in check a little bit and give him an extra edge going into the offseason.

i imagine it will be Thomas-Lundvist and either Miller/Rinne.


wouldn't be surprised if there is a bit of the "prove you can do it twice" factor at play here.

if he keeps up what he showed this year, he'll win one eventually.

Unbelievable. Final three should have been Thomas, Price and Rinne.

I'm surprised he wasn't nominated, didn't think he'd win by all means.. but no nomination is weird.

Still think he is sure to get nominated for the Hart.

Whatever, there is a more important trophy to win.

There were a lot of great picks for this year.. No one can argue with Thomas/Henrik and Rinne/Price were probably close picks.

It's probably the toughest trophy to win IMO since there's so much competition. I don't count the Hart trophy since it's usually the Art Ross winner..

The finalists should be Lundqvist, Rinne and Thomas.

I guess Price finished 4th.

I thought he'd be a finalist, but whatever. It's Thomas' anyway. Let's just beat him in the playoffs.

Actually it's Thomas/Rinne/Luongo, not Thomas/Rinne/Lundqvist.

Great news once again. We don't need other reasons for a higher salary.

You don't have to win the Vezina to get a high salary, you have to get the wins and have good stats...Price has that already.

In the regular season, I don't think Price would have put up the great numbers he did playing behind Vancouver. Price put up stellar numbers partially because he was on a crappy team and it forced him to elevate his play.

I don't think he would have been pushed as much to elevate his play on the Canucks.


Price will likely be 5th in voting. No big deal, it just means other goalies had better seasons than him, it doesn't mean they are the better goalie in the long run.

The same thing I was thinking... if Price was nominated or won the Vezina he would cost much more when we will have to sign him next year.

That bad week near the end of the season killed any chance he had.

Everyone went with the stats and in that regard Price just didn't have a chance. Luongo was 2nd in GAA in the regular season and 1st in wins. He deserved to be nominated before Price, if you only go by stats of course.

In any case Thomas should win this.

Luongo, as good as he is, had those Osgood-like numbers from playing behind a Detroit-like team in Vancouver this year. I totally think Lundqvist, and his league leading 11 shutouts on an 18th in the league overall team (not to mention his sv% and GAA which still compare very favourably with the nominees), should be on the ballot instead. Thomas should obviously be there, and Rinne had a fantastic season too but... it really does look like they just took the starters with the top 3 SV% and GAA and made them finalists, which is kinda disappointing. Tough competition for Price this year, and I just don't see any way of justifying putting him on the ballot over the 4 guys I mentioned above.

Looks like the NHL just looked at the stat sheet and picked the top 3. I think Price and perhaps even more so Lundqvist deserved to get in over Lolongo.

Great to hear if you're a Montreal Canadiens fan, this news couldn't have come at a better moment after the heart-breaking loss of yesterday. Price is a real competitor, even though he won't ever say it out loud, I know deep inside him he wants to prove to everyone that he should have been part of the finalists. Hopefully, this news will give Price the boost needed after the bad loss. He now has all the determination in the world to show that he's a better goalie than Thomas and steal the series for Montreal.

I have no problem with this both in the context of there being a lot of deserving goalies this year and in the selfish sense that I don't want to give him any more bargaining chips than he already has a year from now.

I will have a problem when every analyst and their mother will yak about how the Habs are doomed for failure this off-season because they relied on Price to drag them to the playoffs. For one, that is a very over-simplified take on the Habs' season. And also, if he isn't even a top 3 goalie in the league according to the GMs, then it isn't as rare as people would have you believe to have a very good goalie save your bacon.

Despite many people being disappointed with Price the past two games, I think he is still the best goalie in the league (stats don't paint the whole picture), so I'm fine with no Vezina, cuz it's more about stats, but I think he deserves the Hart. Only person I think equally deserving is Perry.
