CoopII Posted July 9, 2010 Report Share Posted July 9, 2010 ... because with price in net this year i honestly don't think we will make the play offs but we might have a chance at number one draft pick next. the canadiens are also feeding price to the wolves do honestly think if he starts playing bad the fans will be behind him after the way halak played last year. i think we are making a mistake if we sign for lots and long term.but anyway good luck this year montreal your going to need it. Again, I am saying this with the utmost respect for your opinion, but I also disagree with this comment. There is a very strong trend among Habs fans (and among all rabid sports fans - take a look at Leafs Fans) to have a "what have you done for me lately?" mentality when it comes to our players. Do you honestly think that a professional hockey organisation that has been carefully and methodically grooming a player not know more about their players potentials and capabilities than us arm-chair GM's who are enamoured by the flavour of the month? Just because Price is not the same goalie we saw take us to the top of the conference two years ago (a feat, I would argue, which is far greater than a streak of hot games in the playoffs) doesn't mean he is a wash-out. In fact, I would argue that his poise and maturity in response to riding the pines shows his long-term pedigree more than a solid two-months by Halak. I honestly see Price returning to form or at the very least giving a very good showing this year in relation to his development as a young goalie. I suspect all the nay-sayers and Price haters will be mysteriously absent or clamouring to sign up to the Price fan club when this happens.
