  3. This.

    Thrrriens system is great, it makes Price's job easier.

    He's one of the stars....why he's paid the big bucks. Think Pens aren't relying on Crosby...Bolts on Stamkos?

    Was there really any doubt about this? Pretty much anyone who watches the Habs regularly can clearly see this is the case most games especially how poorly the Habs start most games this season.

    Riiiiight... 'cause giving up more shots than the opposition is "part of the strategy."

    Just like Nashville relies on Rinne, Pittsburg on Crosby and Malkin, LA on Kopitar, Boston on Rask, Tampsa on Bishop or Stamkos, NY on Lundquist, Isles on Tavares etc etc etc.

    I hate when they act like Price isn't a regular player on this team. He's just as important as any other star player is to their team.

    Why do you do that in a thread with a graph clearly showing you the opposite?

    Stamkos? What about Johnson, Kucherov, Callahan, Palat and Filppula?
    How much do you rely on one 40+ points player (Stamkos) when you have 3 of them? (Johnson, Kucherov, Stamkos) and 3 more 30+ points players (Callahan, Palat, Fulppula)? That seems kinda balanced to me...

    Are teams dependent on their superstars? Absolutely. But the underlying story here is that our outlying numbers aren't pretty and we are winning because of Price. The fact we are producing wins and points at the pace of these other teams with such bad advanced stats is a testament to how good Price is.

    It's hard to measure the performance of a goaltender vs that of a skater, but if you compare Rinne and Price's shot faced graphs you see Price has been getting a lot more shots in the slot.

    I think Carey is the most heavily leaned upon player in the league to carry his team.

    Not only more shots but more dangerous shots too, I believe. Lots of shots from prime scoring area like the slot.

    In Price we trust and the rest can just go Prust.

    war-on-ice.com has the numbers, but not expressed in the form of pretty graphs like those posted above.

    Yup...bitter TSN!

    Toronto's Sports Network (TSN) should worry about their own team.

    Bernier, Reimer, Kessel, JVR, Lupul, Phaneuf's sweet contract, Kadri, Rieilly, Franson, Clarkson's sweet contract...and they can't score more than 2 goals in their last 5 losses...?? (don't they always say that they have an amazing team??!!).

    They should concentrate on their team!! (TSN...always getting bitter when our Habs win).





    P.S. earlier in the season when Leaves were winning more...they had a panel on making the playoffs,etc...
    Bob Mckenzie was given crap by Laff fans for saying (back then) he didn't think they were a playoff team!! (truth hurts). The others were boasting about how great they thought the Leaves are/were!! They really should worry about their own team instead of making obvious bitter remarks about our Habs.

    I find it interesting that Nashville isn't listed there... why not ?

    Because then they would have to show that Nashville is leaning on Rinne, NY on Lundqvist and that would go against the made up premise of their article.

    He's compared to the goalies of the other top teams in the east.

    Not that big of a difference between Tokarski and Price in point earning %.
