I gave them a chance form the beginning that's why the 2 NJY piks!

If NJY wins He'll retire fo sho and these kinds of players often have their best year at the end of their career.

It would be cool to see, but I'm voting for LA

You're both retarded . Look at the number over the last 2 seasons,if vezina and cups don't count . Price is right up there in the top 10 in all categories . So if we shouldn't judge on awards or stats , then what should we be judging one ? The opinion of 2 retards ?

Hey habs organization . Even though all the hockey experts and fans know that Carey price is a great goalie , trade him now , because spartacus and lakota don't think he is very good . Go get a goalie who has won nothing and below average numbers just because Spartacus and lakota say these things mean nothing with goaltending . lol You guys are a sad bunch . Have fun watching Carey Price for the next 10 years . Go Carey Go .

I haven't missed much have I......Price bashing again I see.

I don't hear you guys talking about the biggest underachiever and overrated goalie of all time .....MR. ROBERTO LUONGO. If you want to talk about a goalie being the sole reason a team has not done anything in the playoffs....then look at Vancouver. A great team...other than the goalie. Luongo is the sole reason why Vancouver has not won a cup. This fact cannot be disputed.

If you want to evaluate Price, then evaluate and compare his performance for the year to the other goalies in the league. Don't evaluate within a team that finished dead last because its easy to say its Prices fault when you look at it that way.

Pureplay,if you are realistic about price you would see that he is not the guy who can lead us to the promise land. great one night,stumbling and deflecting pucks into his own net the next. Just not the guy we need at his pay scale. the money can be spent better in other places

Price Bashing..?...

LMFAO

He is a Massive Failure and You BOTH are Living in complete and Utter Denial the exact same as you were 5 years ago, all that's changed, is you look more like fools for it to day than you did 5 years ago.

He is a Child Cowboy wanna be and this team needs size down the middle and a Man in goal and not a Child of any kind in any position such as Price!

He is a Disgrace to this Franchise and to it's History and top this city and represents everything that is 100% still wrong in the Habs from office!

Nothing, will EVER change for the better until THIS chages!

I can honestly say you , Lakota and Dev are the only 2 people i have ever heard say that about Carey Price . So from my point of view Sparty , you 2 are the ones living in denial . Every article , every analyst says Carey Price is a top goalie and will only get better . Every person i know even non Hab fans say the same . Its only you that thinks this way . The stats and achievements speak for them self and i have said to numerous of times , lets just agree to disagree and move on . You are the one continually writing this non sense even after we agree to be civil . If you want to keep posting it , the you should be prepared to defend it something other the you're OWN OPINION , because last time i checked , your opinion means squat in the world of hockey .

Price has to go in order for this team to go forward. he is so inconsistant that it demoralizes the team in front of them. Cant build confidence when you just dont know who is going to show up in net. Mr. cowboy clown or tretiak ? Big down the middle and stable in net will turn this franchise around. Until price is gone its just not going to happen. sorry ryan but we must agree to disagree on this player.

Dont get me wrong...im not a big Luongo fan....but it seems when VAncouver gets into the playoffs they forget how to score......Now that can be hard on a goalie.

Montreal has many problems also...one just happens to the inablity to score on a regular basis. They have their moments..but not consistent.

Price shows moments of greatness...and then other times you have to wonder what he was thinking....it was like the puck went right through him...
I dont have the answer on his weak play at times, but I only hope that this new management can turn him into a more mature, consitently goalie.......

Well put labatts.I agree with your assessment of luongo too. Sedins just dont play the same game in the playoffs as they do in the regular season. Price could straighten out and become more consistant,then he would be a real gem,but im thinking he has had enough time in the league to be way more consistant than he has been..who knows next year may be his coming out party..

Like I said before, compare his stats to the others in the league .
Is Price the best? No.
Does he need to do more? Yes I agree he could be better.

Is he the disaster and ultimate disgrace that you two sisters make his out to be? NO far from it. Listen Fric and Frac.......the team has a lot more problems to solve before they get to the goal tending.

I think we all agree on most issues with this team except the goalie in net....
I think Molson has taken a huge step with cleaning up the front office and bringing in some proven people.....

But thats just the start....
Next will be player evaluation.
Its not a matter of just getting rid of players but who can they bring in to help improve the other players on the team.

There are some really good players on this team...but because of the last management...there was a huge lack of direction and forsight by management to find that piece to the puzzle that makes good teams....great teams!!

Look whos in playing for the cup.....two needs I would never of came close to in choosing....
Jersey didnt even make the playoffs last year.
