With the Olympic Break here I'm already in withdrawl from Habs Hockey. I decided to take a hard look at whether or not my faith in Price is misplaced, I'm not saying he is Dryden or Roy by any stretch, but I believe he is becoming an elite Goalie. Here are the stats amongst his peers that have played similar numbers: Goalies that have played more than 30 Games: Category Price's Rank Shots against 2nd Shutouts 2nd GAA 5th SV % 5th wins 5th (this is out of 26 goalies) Goalies with 40 or more games Category Price's Rank Shots against 2nd Shutouts 2nd GAA 4th SV % 4th wins 4th (Out of 13 Goalies) Maybe I'm an optimist, but these rankings are hardly dismal, and I have seen the goals that make you cringe, but his positional play is upper class, and he's made more of the "spectacular" variety saves this season than I can ever recall. Am I missing something?
