    It kicked in during the 18/19 season. This is the third season into it.

    They’re going by playoff series I don’t think the play-in counts.

    Roy had Bellows, Damphousse, Muller and Savard, and Leclair and Carbo up front.....that's a nice forward group. Eric Desjardins and Schneider in the back....

    His tossing the puck down the ice a minute into the Leafs PP to start the third must had been so demoralizing. His ability to handle the puck is amazing.

    As a reminder... I swore an oath, that I would release whatever the hell Troll Stomper is on those posters who question Price’s gameplay or salary. Anyone know how to activate Troll Stomper? I tried to send him a message but I couldn’t.
    This oath was a result of Price winning the series against Toronto lmao

    The other problem with not being happy Price was making $10.5 million is the Habs always had cap space they never used (up until this season). Price’s contract in past years wasn’t holding them back from using that cap space.

    Edit: maybe going forward it does but other goalies have shown they can play well into their mid-thirties, hopefully Price is the same. He gives them a chance every night to win when it matters most (in the playoffs).

    It really puts into perspective how dominant carey is by the sheer amount of series he’s won on his back compared to the leafs who have won 0, with multiple superstar forwards.

    Different era but Roy had some pretty horrible playoff games with the Habs. Some 7 to 5 wins vs Buffalo, the Games vs the Bruins were always tight checking but Roy gave up alot of softies in the playoffs. He always had one of the best defensive teams in front of him also. My friend is a Bruins fan and I told him price would probably have 3 cups if he was playing for Boston.

    Play-in series were exclusively added to the playoffs so they should count just the same. All stats accumulated during the playoffs count as official playoff stats.

    The other thing is Price really covers up players mistakes. How often do we, as posters and fans, really get down on a player for a bad play that leads to a goal. If that goal isn’t scored we usually forget about it pretty quickly. I’m sure it really gives them a ton of confidence knowing he’s back there and if they make a mistake he’s there to bail them out.

    The Habs had 38 giveaways in game 6. Since the NHL started counting that stat in 2005-06 that’s the most they had. Their previous record was 30 in the regular season and 26 in the playoffs. Price was always there to help them get to OT and win it on their 2nd shot of the OT period, when the Leafs had 13.

    A huge plus sometimes ignored. He is very good at limiting some forecheck ops, and starting the transition with his ability to play the puck

    He's been awesome, but the defense has really helped him out lately too. Teams playing well and he's the undisputed MVP.

    We were tough on Ducharme, but he did the right thing by overplaying our top 4 D (and not having the #5 and #6 D play together). Hopefully they won't run out of gas anytime soon.
