    He hasn't been terrible (aside from the last couple of games) like some people are saying but in no way does he deserve the Vezina this year. His numbers are near the bottom of the league and that's with his team outplaying the opposition for most games this year. There have been way too many times when the opposing goalie was superior.

    That's umpossible!!

    I have it an good record by several posters on this very board that there are easily 10-14 better goalies than him. Must be the biased Toronto media. :sarcasm:

    Price is not in the top 5 for the Vezina, no way. I am a big fan of his and I am being objectionable and unbiased. He is not having a Vezina season.

    The poll was taken after the Leafs game.

    He's the leading candidate in the EAST.
    As voted by the coaches of the Eastern Conference.

    Gallagher narrowly beat Huberdeau for Calder.
    Subban 'won' the Norris
    and Therrien 'won' the Jack adams

    I love Price too and, of course, REALLY hope he finds his game, and soon! But, yeah, don't quite get this one. Has goaltending around the NHL this year been pretty bad?

    It was not a free poll. The award is voted on by GM's, the poll was done with coaches and they could only vote for goalies in their own conference.

    Even if this is only for East, still good to see many Habs recognized/nominated.

    He was the runaway leader for Western goalies.

    Holy **** you guys are unbelievable. Instead of being happy that most coaches in the East picked our players as the winners.. "but it was only the coaches..." "...but it's only for the East"... but but but

    ****ing hell

    Realistically Price has no shot at the Vezina, and I'm admittedly a fanboy.

    The other 3 have legit shots though.

    Debate wise, kinda makes a big difference if you say he was voted best in the EAST or best in the LEAGUE.

    Besides, that's how it was done... So they (and I) are just pointing out facts.

    Anyway.. Besides Price, not surprised with the other candidates being voted as the winners.

    And that's from all but two of the Eastern conference's head coaches. You know, the guys who generally know the players better than journalists, analysts, and fans. Price may not be having his best season, but he's coveted among just about every team. Subban was a no-brainer, Gallagher and Huberdeau were no brainers (nice to see Gally get it from the coaches though), and Therrien is a no brainer.

    Awesome!

    Feel like y'all don't remember what it's like to have an actual average or bad goalie. Price is excellent.
