    Subban and Therrien each picked up 1 vote in best defenseman and best coach categories. I won't mention who won best defenseman.

    Price sucks. He's only good when he has a stacked lineup in front of him like team Canada, or the Habs.

    Pretty much this. At least that's what the main board has taught me.

    Price? Pfft, overrated.

    Main board says so (and that any goalie could have won on Team Canada and put up the numbers he did, but that's besides the point.).

    There wasn’t a lot of consensus on this one, with seven coaches getting at least one vote. Tampa’s Jon Cooper, Florida’s Gerard Gallant, Washington’s Barry Trotz, Detroit’s Mike Babcock and Montreal’s Michel Therrien garnered one vote apiece, leaving the Rangers’ Alain Vigneault and the Islanders’ Jack Capuano to battle it out for the remaining five votes. Capuano got the nod, getting three to Vigneault’s two.

    I guess NHL coaches are idiots also....

    lol so many sarcastic comments in this thread... but let's be honest, you can't really judge off this since it's only for this year.... Rick Nash won best player.

    He's having an unreal year... but definitely not the best player in the East

    Meh. 35th best goaltender in 2012-2013 and youngest Goaltender to 200 losses.

    Budaj was pretty much as good as Price.

    These NHL coaches know nothing. How can they say such a thing when the experts on HF say he's overrated. I'll take the word of the HF experts over NHL coaches any day so don't believe a word of what these NHL coaches think. :sarcasm:

    Why is Price so overrated and Subban so underrated? Other goal tenders can be as dominant as Price. But who can equal Subban when he is at the top of his game?

    I think the difference is that Price is at the top of his game more often than Subban. Consistency counts.

    I understand what you mean. But running with the puck 26 minutes every night while having to adapt to each team style of play is harder. Price has to stop the puck every night; there is no real adaptation to be done here. Every team shoots and you have to stop the puck. I think it is easier for a goal tender to have consistency than a foward or defenseman. Just my opinion.

    And that opinion is wrong. Every player on every team has different shooting tendencies that a goalie has to account for, and then we have to start talking about team tendencies and strategies. It's a team game and they all have to adapt but I would argue that, individually at least, the goalie is the one that has to account for these changes the most.

    Really? McDonagh? Am I the only one who finds him overrated? On pace for 32 points this year. By comparison, Subban has 31 points already.

    Not saying Subban is the best but McDonagh? Really?

    McD is a very good young Dman, but seems he gets overrated, maybe because he plays for the Rangers? He's good, but not Subban good...

    What do stupid coaches know any way? Everyone wants their coaches fired for a reason.

    I don't think you've ever played goal. Different shooters have different tendencies, teams have different approaches to generating shots and scoring chances. Goalies have to adapt to opponents and the flow of the game like everyone else. They also have to be aware of shooting tendencies of teams and players. Constantly thinking and preparing to react in the right way, while never overthinking things.
