[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Pepe Le Pew... : Chowdah - The holidays got you down or something? You've been rather surly and negative lately. Price is one of the best goalies in the NHL and IMO, Stanley Cup winning caliber if the team around him is good enough. Is he capable of what Thomas did in last season's playoffs? No, but who is?

Surly ? Negative ? Not really feeling that way. I'll try to be more chipper and positive. ( Going to the pharmacy after I'm done here ). Tomorrow when I post, this will be me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFGpI8bfep0
Yes he is one of the best goalies in the NHL and has good stats.......during the regular season.
Being a good goalie during the regular season doesn't necessarily give you a cup in June. He's 5-11 with only 1 playoff series win in the playoffs.
There's a long list of goalies who have been said to be the best goalies in the game who have never won the cup. Maybe he can be like Tony Esposito . Win a cup in Montreal not playing a game in the playoffs riding the bench and watching Rogie Vachon do his thing . Then go on to a brilliant career and win nothing.
Or be like a Roberto Luongo, Ed Giacomin, Curtis Joseph, Ron Hextall , Mike Liut etc... and not win nothing.
There's something about Price's play that has always made me a doubter. Whether it's letting in a soft goal, not being the main factor in winning big games ( IMO he wasn't in the WJHC ) or just the impression he gives me about being a goalie who has a nonchalant attitude. I could be wrong about him but him being a Hab I hope I'm right.
