2008 ALL-STAR GAME AUDIO: Carey Price postgame 1 | Price postgame 2

Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has been named to his second NHL All-Star Game, one of six netminders selected for the game Jan. 30 in Raleigh.

Price played in the 2009 game in Montreal, held in the city as part of the Canadiens’ centennial celebrations.

He’s the only member of the club chosen to take part, a mild surprise being the overlooking of rookie defenceman P.K. Subban, who if selected would have participated in the skills competition.

More on Price and his selection is posted at the Canadiens’ website. From the National Hockey League, here is the full lineup for the game.

And from 2008, here was a look back at an all-star game history in Montreal.

Below: on opposite benches tonight in New York, on the same bench in Montreal at the 2009 All-Star Game.

    I know some of you are going to think I’ve lost my marbles here, but that’s kinda the point��I’ve gotta have a little fun with you sometimes! I’ve been loving going through all the new spring styles this week (kind of ironic since the weather is finally warming and I’m inside oozing over handbags online). Soon it’ll be time to get out in that fresh air and strut! So, what to wear?

    I had a riot writing this article. Here’s the idea: First I picked the 3 ladies I feel are most likely to win the best actress award at the Oscars next week. (Don’t agree? I’d love to debate this one, I get so excited for the Oscars,designer replica handbags!) Then I did a little style profile of them, as well as their character in the movie. Then I picked a handbag designer and style for each. I should be a film stylist! I just loved it. So,Prada Handbags, which leading lady are you? A casual Ms. Bullock? A royal Ms. Streep, or a boyish, art school Carey Mulligan? Are you all about Gucci handbags? Louis Vuitton handbags? Or is it Burberry for you?

    Have you seen your kids’ outfit choices lately? The new generation of boys & girls is a generation that’s more and more chosen to ignore the signs that point to “women’s” or “men’s” wear.

    While some of you may still be getting used to the man bag,Replica Watches, (which is so prevalent now that if you’re still hung up on that��you really should get with it) the younger generation is ripe with men trying on skirts and tights, girls in combat boots and mens pants, and every mix in between

    Those of us that have actually had more physical lives than sitting in a cubical, realise how painful high ankle sprains are. I know you understand, that’s why you have been my main man on this site for over 3 years brother, you definitely get it.

  3. K-hab25 says:

    LMFAO, how true, how MF true!!!

  4. K-hab25 says:

    Umm, as usual, you have no idea what you’re talking about. He played that TB game on DEC 30, the all-star game was JAN 25. He came back to play in relief of, the god Halak, who got pulled on the 20th of JAN, and then got lit up in NJ the next night. BEFORE, the all-star game. Do a little research, or shut your yap!!!

  5. craz11 says:

    Has this been posted yet?

    Apologies if it has. I just discovered it, made me LOL.

  6. saskhabfan says:

    What no halak? But he was apparently the best goalie in the world last year according to the crybabies who were upset that he was traded,now he is an average goalie.  Luckily PG traded the right guy,our team with halak’s numbers and we would already be in seller mode.






    I think I know more than most about hockey and believe my opinions are almost always reasonable and thought out.-manapart.

  7. showey47 says:

    So true about high ankle sprains. It’s happened to me a couple of times. I honestly feel a broken ankle is less painful and takes less time to heal then a high ankle sprain.

  8. habs63 says:

    Did Scott Niedermayer make the team this year? He hasn’t played for a year now, doesn’t that justfiy an all star selection.

  9. TripleX says:

    I doubt Zetterberg was snubbed.  The Wings only care about winning the Cup and the All Star Joke is just an annoyance for them.

    Remember what happened to Lidstrom?  The rumor is that the Wings made it clear NOT to choose Zetterberg because he was not going.

    Too bad the Habs did not say the same thing for Price.  Price needs time off to relax, he does not need the stupid All Star Joke.

  10. Nahlsy says:

    By the way, congratulations to Carey Price for perservering. It has to have been a hell of a rough past year or so, but he fought through all the garbage that was thrown at him from the media and the so-called fans that were going out of their way to make life miserable for the kid and he’s managed to silence all of the critics by earning his way into the All-Star game and mid-season MVP candidate status. I’d hate to imagine what the Habs’ record would be like without him this year as their inability to score and worse, their inability to score anything in the clutch leaves them with very little margin for error. Way to go kid, if nothing else, you’ve proven you’re one tough little battler and that’s exactly what teams need from their goalies if they want to succeed.

  11. Nahlsy says:

    Strange observations:

    The two teams that fought to represent the East in the Finals last year (Montreal & Philly) each have only one all-star on this year’s team (Price and Giroux) and one of them didn’t play in that series. Meanwhile in the West, the Wings also have only 1 player on the roster (Lidstrom).

    Biggest snub? Richards, Zetterberg, Quick, Doughty, Howard? All of the above.

  12. tophab says:

    JM cost pk a spot.

  13. Maksimir says:

    Just realized what a horrible jersey that was last year.

  14. jimmy shaker says:

    Nope, he was on fire before the allstar break/game…..I remember with the bad ankle he dominated the panthers and then the last game before the break took out the lightning in a shootout stopping St.louis to ice it.  The ankle pretty much did him in, but the shelacking in the rookie game and the allstar game did his head in real good!


  15. Everlasting1 says:

    What what what?? PK not selected?? With all of his 3 pp goals? Oh the humanity!

    He doesn’t need nor deserve the added spotlight and another forum to run his mouth. But it’s too late.. the media attention will spark an enquiry over this travesty.


    “We don’t see things as they are, but as we are.” – Anais Nin

    Don’t pollute the water.

  16. Wayne says:

    Happy for Carey, he deserves it. Noubt doubt PK’s misdirected exuberance viewed by the powers that be. may have cost him a spot. Then again, besides his first month out this year, his play hasn’t exactly been All-Star caliber.

  17. Mattyleg says:

    There are a couple that are better than most, I’ll admit.

  18. J Haul says:

    hah.. I was just about to post something very similar. If there’s one thing we know, it’s how skills competitions are all about respect. We can’t have a rookie showing anyone up with “fancy moves” now, can we?

  19. Danno says:

    It’s all about respect.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  20. SeriousFan09 says:

    Larsson and Grabner are selected ahead of PK Subban? What a load of crap.


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  21. Danno says:

    Cheers Jordio-oh!


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  22. Jordio-oh says:

    All good points.

    To each their own.

  23. SensFanSpezza says:

    Damn.  Price really needs a rest more than an all star game.  They should have picked Picard.  He’s thrilling at both ends of the ice.

  24. Danno says:

    I’ll grant you there are redeeming qualities to the program, but overall I find reality-based shows contrived. They actually protray a warped stereotypical or promotional aspect of whatever is being shown. The networks love them because they are cheap to make. In fact, I would not be surprised that the NHL paid a considerable sum to HBO for what was essentially a commercial promoting the game. I would much prefer to have a fly with a tiny camera on its back filming in Colin Campbell’s and Gary Bettman’s office without their knowledge to get a true picture of what goes on behind the scenes in today’s NHL.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  25. habs001 says:

    based on his play price deserves to be an all star and mvp candidate….i bet 90% of the teams in the last 20 years who are 26th in scoring at the half way mark of the season are fighting for a lottery pick..goaltending,the d and the pk forwards have been amazing…

  26. andrewberkshire says:

    The thing that bothered me most about 24/7 was how incredibly unintelligent Bruce Boudreau seemed. People who rely on swearing that often in their speech are almost always extremely uneducated and therefore have absolutely no vocabulary. It was embarrassing to watch him bitching so hard and never arriving at a point other than to swear. I have no problem with swearing, in fact I think that the idea of certain words being taboo is very stupid, but when it’s all you can say, it’s pathetic.

  27. Jordio-oh says:

    I definitely agree with you about it being a bit put on and how players made it obvious they knew they were on camera. But you just need to take the little things you enjoy and ignore the rest. Things like the Crosby interview about how Malkin needs to go on the ice last, or Craig Adams’ kid naming all the players in the pictures or the on ice microphones (with cussing and what the players really say instead of the select stuff they show on NBC).

    Cut some of the hokey fat away and enjoy the true parts of the show, because there were many.  In addition, the music in the show was fantastic and the 2-3 day turnover in production was also impressive. We’d watch an episode that included a game that was only played 3 days before. 60 hours of cutting room floor footage in order to create a show in three days. Need to tip your hat to that.

  28. G-Man says:

    I haven’t gotten over how the Habs USED to be a great team. They haven’t been for a long f#$%ing time, yet those more delusional around these parts (HIO) believe this is actually a good team that has “stars” playing for it. The team is mediocre and Price’s record at the end of this season will reflect that. And if I were Price, I’d have the flu All-Star weekend.

  29. Danno says:

    No offense, but I found it to be a bit of a put on. Everyone hammed it up knowing a camera was in front of them. Reality shows have very little to do with reality and are only about entertainment. I found the Boudreau blowup staged and phony. Reality shows have destroyed most of what was left of good prime time television by occupying the time slot with mindless crap.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  30. savethepuck says:

    I was about tp mention the ankle injury and not the All_Star game too. Totally agreed about that season for Carey.

  31. RS says:

    It’s one thing for a forward to go to the all star game and float around in a non-contact game, but for a goalie it’s not an easy gig.

  32. andrewberkshire says:

    It’s true, high ankle sprains are one of the slowest healing injuries you can get. The biggest issue wasn’t that Price went to the all-star game that year, it was that he rushed back from injury to do it, and that Guy Carbonneau allowed it. With his mobility seriously hampered, his confidence was eradicated over the next month and a half.

  33. K-hab25 says:

    Oh let g-man have his hate for Carey. He hasn’t gotten over losing Huet yet.

  34. rocketsglare says:

    Great honor, but would have preferred if Price where not selected and used the off time to rest.

    Go Habs Go!

  35. andrewberkshire says:

    Great dramas: Dexter and The Walking Dead. Boardwalk Empire is also excellent. I bet you might enjoy at least 1/3!

  36. K-hab25 says:

    His play declined after his injury, not the all-star game. He had starts before the all-star game that were bad in 09, when he rushed back from his ankle injury. I had a similar injury and felt pain in that ankle on and off for 6 months. It’s funny that those 3 to 4 months were the worst of his career and everyone thinks it was the all-star game and not the injury.

  37. andrewberkshire says:

    Thanks Ed!

    I actually had very low expectations of him for the tournament, mainly because Pierre McGuire kept insisting that he’d be the breakout offensive star of the tournament, and I trust nothing he says, so I was a little blown away by how Louis controlled the play when he was on the ice.

  38. ed lopaz says:

    Well done Andrew. I watched Louis play and agree with your analysis.

    Louis is a great team player.


  39. Mattyleg says:

    I guess I just don’t understand ‘television.’

    So many people have told me about this funny show or that funny show, and I haven’t seen one that is in the least bit amusing.

    This drama or that drama is unremittingly dull or Hollywood-shmoltzy.

    My TV just shows sports. And that’s fine by me. No sh!tty scripts, no laugh-tracks, and very little force-fed symphonically-arranged dramatic music.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  40. kempie says:

    No kidding! Lower body injury anybody? Carey, that ankle looks a little swollen. Better play it safe.

  41. Da Hema says:

    Given how his play declined so markedly after his last all-star appearance, I view Carey’s selection with some concern. I hope he handles it better this time.


    An important announcement from the Government of Canada:

    Health Canada is reminding Canadians that consumption of the Toronto Maple Leafs has led to vomiting, fever, bloody diarrhea, dementia, and penile dysfunction.

  42. Mark C says:

    I would bet that Pitt finishes ahead of the Ranger, but that’s an assumption on my part. Who knows what the future holds for both teams. While, it might be all fine and dandy when Sid comes back, his chances for a long-term head injury have increased What happens if he comes back and gets hurt again and is out month this time, still like Pitt more than the Rangers? Who knows what will happen. I just think we’re really splitting hairs here, if we’re going to complain about coaching decisions based on a few points difference in the standing at half way point in the season.

    If you think Price should play both games that’s fine, but second guessing which game he starts seems away over the top at this point in the season, especially given how little we know about any given players situation, e.g. Price could have a cold, or is tired, etc.


  43. Jordio-oh says:

    24/7 was just a great show.

    HBO is a wonderful thing.

  44. shiram says:

    I’m just wondering, if that is so, why he isnt firing right back up since being back with Plekanec.
    Could it be he is an inconsistent player?

  45. mbplekfan says:

    Unforutunately AK is going to make you eat those words after he is traded. He will excell in a system that values his abilities and massages his ego.

    Martin had AK on fire earlier in the year and he demoted him to Gomez’ line and pissed him off. Dumb coaching move.

  46. Mattyleg says:

    I care not a jot for this “All-Star-Game”.

    It’s almost as bad as “24/7”, or “The Winter Classic” or “Fans Vote the Three Stars”.

    Hockey’s turned into a three-ring circus led by the short man who gets a bøner for kow-towing to Americans.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  47. Malreg says:

    Auld tonight, Price tomorrow gives you the greater chance of winning both games, as opposed to Price tonight and Auld tomorrow.

    Back to back games with travel, Auld has to start one of them.  I’d rather he play the weaker team.  And of course Lunqvist is going to get the start, the Rangers are off until they play Vancouver, at home again, on Thursday.

  48. mike g says:

    The diff in pts between PIT and NYR is 3 now, simply because Sid is injured and they’re in a mini slump. You and i both know that once he comes back, theyll be normal again and secure a playofg spot very shortly. NYR will be like us, fighting until the end for a spot. Tonights gane is way more important, so you have to go with your best. Especially knowing that NYT will go with their best. Why make it easier fot hem right off bat?…

    “These head movies make my eyes rain” -Simple Jack

    I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

  49. Malreg says:

    He wasnt voted in, he was selected by the league.

  50. G-Man says:

    Will history repeat itself with the All Star game and Carey Price? Let’s hope the fans who voted him in for this glorified shinny game realize he could have used the rest.

  51. Mark C says:

    The difference in points between Pitt and the Rangers is 3 points, and the Rangers have a game in hand. I get what you’re saying, but there is half a season left, not sure there is any reason to get this bent out of shape over player decisions based on a 3 and possible 1 point difference in the standings.

  52. joeybarrie says:

    AK could play with Crosby and Ovechkin as his line mates, and he would still be a floater. We will see a flash from him again, and he will end up the season with his normal under performing 0.6 – 0.65 pts per game…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  53. WindsorHab-10 says:

    I hope he respectfully bows out & just relax during break.

  54. RGM says:

    Smiles. 🙂

    Go Habs Go!

  55. Canadiangrrl says:

    A mixed blessing, ain’t it?


    Hab Baby #1 due 5/19/11…

  56. ed lopaz says:

    agree with your post almost 100%.

    where we disagree?

    1) I do NOT like Martin.

    2) Martin’s dumbest move was to change AK’s line when we were finally seeing AK flying out there.

    No matter what happens tonight, IMO, Price should be playing against every team AHEAD of us in the standings.

  57. Danno says:

    I too would have prefered to have Price tonight and Auld tomorrow. Getting points from NYR is definitely more important than getting them off the Pens.

    While it’s true Price could be tired or have a cold or whatever, and that would explain the decision. But all things being equal, if Price is fine, he should have got the call tonight.

    Also sorry to see Price named to the All Star show. I would have prefered to see him get some rest instead. That game is just a useless and meaningless distraction. Not worth it. He should bow out.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  58. Mark C says:

    Really? I know it’s a small sample size, but he’s got a GGA under 2 and a .937 SV%. He’s given the team a chance to win every start, even with the weak goals vs. TO, holding that team to only 2 goals should mean at least one point.

  59. 123456 says:

    his GAA is under 2 – it’s not like he has been bad

  60. mike g says:

    AULD?!!!!  AULD??!!!!! ….

    Are they serious?

    Were playing against a team with one of the, if not the best goaler in the league this year, who’s fighting exactly the same way as we are for a playoff spot, were without our top goalscoring threat no matter if he’s having a down year or not, and were putting ALEX AULD in nets!!

    Big mistake IMO, big mistake.

    This is a huge game no matter how you look at it, and 2 pts for us and none for NYR would be huge tonight. Having Price in nets tonight gave you a very good chance of doing just that, especially since he’s had almost 3 days of rest. Now, having Auld in nets and without your top sniper adds a bunch of fog, and this game smells like a total crap shot.

    The way I see it, the Habs are hoping Auld has a good game and gets us at least 1 point.

    And if you ask me, that’s the wrong approach to take going into a game like this.

    Play the best goalie you have, play Price vs NYR and give it your best to beat them and give yourself an advantage in the very tight standings.

    Absolutely no need to put him in vs PIT tomorrow. If we lose that game, who cares, were not fighting with the Pens for a playoff spot. But if we beat NYR, apart from getting the 2 pts, we take away 2pts from them, and then we can use our game in hand to try and gain more ground.

    IMO, this is the dumbest move ever…

    I’ve supported JM in the past, and I still do, but man this is such a bonehead move.

    Prioritize your games as a coach, and use the tools you have accordingly. And IMO, tonights game is of top priority, so the whole friggin’ toolbox should be thrown at the Rangers. Open it up, actually, and hope that a wrech or something hits one of them with it’s pointy-edge.

    Damn, I really didn’t wanna see Auld in nets tonight. This sucks. This sucks more than AK on a 6 minute shift in our zone.

    I guarantee you Tortz will throw out his A1 roster, with Henrik in nets. No question about it.

    That’s because Tortz knows how important these games are.

    JM might regret this one, and if we miss the dance by a point or 2, I will look back at this decision…


    “These head movies make my eyes rain” -Simple Jack

    I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

  61. derfab says:

    No Carey, don’t go! Snub!  A Complete waste of time where goalers, more than anyone, risk injury. Boycott the All Star game!!!!!

  62. avatar_58 says:

    If you say so. Auld has no quick movement, no ability to make that nessesary save. The ONLY way they win with him in net is by keeping it the hell away from him, and to the outside.

    Basically all he has going for him is inital positioning. Once the puck moves left or right he doesn’t move with it.

  63. sidhu says:

    From Elliot Friedman:

    The Montreal Canadiens have two defenceman under contract for next year – Jaroslav Spacek and PK Subban. Hal Gill
    approached the Canadiens about an extension and was told they’d like to
    wait. “You win games, you win a new contract,” Gill said. “I understand

    Wisniewski said the biggest difference between Montreal and the
    Islanders is what the two teams want you to do with the puck. Canadiens
    want you to make a play. Isles want it off the boards.

  64. matraque says:

    I disagree…

    IMO, Auld had 1 bad period and it was against the leafs.


    Canadien en 5!
    Never go Full Retard

  65. habs-hampton says:

    Contrats to Carey!

    Although, I really wish he would take the break to relax and recharge his batteries for the stretch run.

  66. avatar_58 says:

    I don’t even enjoy watching Auld games. Every single shot on net is an adventure. He’s like Thomas only without the luck.
