As a habs fan its a tough one.

You know that some player(s) are going to get injured in the tournament. Its always a risk

However, the positive that comes with playing at such a high level probably outweigh that risk. I think Bergevin puts too much stock in "winning" but i do think there is some value in it. The confidence, the feeling, the motivation - even though its not the NHL or the cup - can be an important part of a player's development. Lets not forget that the last time Price represented his country (Olympics) we saw a massive increase in his confidence & many point to that tournament as the single biggest change that took him from a good goalie to a great one.

Its tough to say whether the experience will change Carey this time around, mind you, coming off a season to forget and playing a high level couldn't hurt. If anything you have to imagine that he'll be in the type of game shape come opening night that only a handful of other goaltenders will be able to boast.

I am hopeful that Montoya/Condon will get a little bit more usage this year anyway (Carey hinted at wanting a few less games than his last full season) so we shall see.

Ultimately I have to say yes, as Canadian Canadiens fan, I would want Price at the world cup, even though there's always a risk.
