Poll Question:
In the couple games that Carey Price has started in he has looked like a solid goaltender. Do you think he is the real deal for years to come?

Choices:

The next great goaltender!
Good but not quite a superstar.
He will be average
He will be a complete bust!
Too early to tell

(Anonymous Vote)

last night was the first full game of seen of price, and I was very impressed...I don't think I've EVER seen someone looked so relaxed in net...He never seemed to look out of position, he never looked desparate....It was incredible. I played goal at at moderately high level (cough-Jr.B-cough) and that was fast enough where I found myself lunging around on a frequent basis....How he can stay so still and so relaxed and just let the pucks hit him is beyond incredible as far as I'm concerned....The only other goalie who I've ever seen who just seem to let pucks hit him (not the other way around) was my hockey idol patrick Roy...I'm not saying Price is the next Roy, I'm just saying if I could start over and model myself after a goalie from this season, I would probably pick Price.

Sugar Ray over Hasek any day!

I think ive seen about 3 games of him and he looks like the type of goalie that can take over the game. Something the Leafs have been missing for quite some time now.

I already voted though, sorry. I said he would be good but won't stand out like Roy or Brodeur.

But like you mentioned in your sugestion, it is to early to tell. We have only seen what 4 games of NHL hockey from him. He has looked good in those games though.

Carey Price is the real deal. I got to watch him tons here in Hamilton last year. When he butterflies and stretches his torso up there isn't much net left to shoot at. With Carboneau behind the bench coaching that no forecheck trap, it is going to be tough to beat him. I think if I could have switched goalies last night the Leafs would have come out on top.

I believe he is the real deal. I've been a goalie most of my life and still play. I also do goalie coaching and some scouting. I had the pleasure of watching him play last year in the WHL. He is by far one of the best young goalies out there. He has incredible positioning and excellent lateral movement. just my two cents.

I agree with the fact that it is way to early to tell, but his positioning and calm demeanor is unbelievable, hes due for a very good future if he keeps it up and seeing as how hockey is his passion, i'm sure he will keep it up to be the next big thing, hopefully im right about this one...Thanks god the habs picked him...Go Habs Go!!

Guest 4912 - I stand by my post. I gave Price the ultimate compliment which is hard to do knowing he is a Hab. In case you have been in a cocoon your whole life I would like to inform you that Leafs fans in general do not like the Habs. I would imagine as well that you know you are free to read any posts you like, if you do not like mine, then do not read them? Thirdly, I am well aware that the Leafs stink right now and the way they are going will definitely not make the playoffs. Fourthly, if you watched the game you would know that Price stole the game for the Habs. Check out the shot totals as this might give you some clue as to the reasoning behind this post.

At this time, I feel it is far too early to tell whether Price will be the next great goaltender.

We have seen plenty of Goaltenders come in and play well, just look at last years play offs as an example. But, now we are in a new year and these goaltenders for the most part have hit a slump. And not of all it can be blamed on their respective teams.

So, when/if he becomes a starter, I will let you know my opinion then. :)

Its funny how the Habs always seem to get lucky and get great goaltenders in the past.

They got Huet for dirt cheep and he turned out to be a pretty solid goalie for them the past couple of years.

Do you really think it's luck??? Great Goaltending scouting is rare. Very rare.

Do you think it was lucky that the Sharks had Nabokov, Toskala, and Kipprusoff in their system all at the same time???

I don't think luck it the right word.

Wayne or Bobby?? How about both!!!

Im not saying that they dont have great scouting.

By using the word "lucky" in my recent post, I am refering to the fact of when they draft or trade for a goalie, the goaltender never seems to turn into a bust and plays super for the Habs.

You might want to include the exception of Jose Theodore in there, but other than that I have to agree. Montreal's goaltender scouting is superb: Price, Huet, Roy, Halak... The list goes on and on. Halak is likely going to be a decent goaltender, and might be able to secure a starter job elsewhere if the Habs don't decide to keep him as backup to Price in the future. Huet was definitely a solid acquisition, and Roy, well, I think it goes without saying that there's a very fine line between Brodeur and Roy when it comes to who's the best all-time. I'd have to go with Brodeur personally.

Price though... He's a very good goaltender right now, he'll definitely be one of the best, but I think it's too early to say whether or not, when all's said and done, he'll be at the same level as Roy and Brodeur. There's no doubt in my mind though that Price will be a Hall of Famer, but exactly how good he'll be remains to be seen.

Price is good, very good for a young goaltender, yet I would still consider Huet as the habs' no.1 goaltender for this year at least. Huet has played against better teams and his stats remain slightly better that Price's. Though I'm absolutely not saying Price will not surpass Huet at some point, I think it's much too early to tell how good he'll come out to be. GO HABS GO

He'll be a hall of famer?

people, you've seen him play at most 10 games. and now people are comparing him with Brodeur and Roy? The guy could get a career ending injury tomorrow, would you take him into the hall of fame?

Same thing as people say about Crosby, including him in with the top 10 all time. If he were to retire tomorrow, is he a hall of famer?

If Price holds this solid for the next few years, then he'll be a hall of famer.

I happen to watch most canadiens games too. Huet the second best goalie in the east ? Price I think has been equally as good.

These are my rankings for the east goalies

Lundqvist
Thomas
Brodeur
Gerber
Price/Huet

Ellis or Mason?

Way to spark off in yet another direction! Ain't it great how we go so far off topic? That's what hockey is about!

So, my eastern conference goalie rankings are (this year):

Lundqvist
Ward
Thomas
Biron
Price
Vokoun
Brodeur
Gerber
Kolzig
Huet
Homqvist
Miller
Toskala
Lehtonen
Hedberg
Emery
Fleury
DiPietro
Raycroft

Habs get number 25 this year

Patrick Lalime had a great start to his first season, where is he now, not at the top of the league is he.

The goalie is the last line of defense, and takes all the flack when a team goes on a loosing streak, and that is when they can fall apart, then slip into the woodwork.

Many goalies have a great stretch of games, some stretches last 10-20, 30-40 games others last 10-12 seasons...

It is too early to tell if Price will go on to be one of the greats, many goalies have tried, and many have failed...

I don't necessarily agree with everything I say.

lundqvist is number one hands down you can make a case for thomas,, brodeur no way the only games he wins are when he sees 20 or less shots,,,Gerber plays well when he plays for the best team in the league but when they sruggle he struggles a good goalie is one who can help carry a team gerbs cant do that,,, and like i said price is an excellent young goalie but huet is clearly a level above not only the stats show it,,,, huet sees more shots huet hold mtl in cames for so long untill we get our act together,,, again price is good but he is not number 1 for a reason

He is a great goaltender no dought about it for his age, within a few years of experience he will definitely be in the top ten for goaltenders and may even be the greatist in the league at his prime.

Huet has played a signifgantly more games then price this season,,, and also huet will not finish this season as a montreal canadien.. he will be traded to a cup contending team that need a goalie for the edge in the playoffs, and honestly this is whats best for huet and the montreal canadiens as i think it was alex said huet is 32,, his career started late price is the futur and will definetly be a better goalie then huet but not this season i don;t believe,,, montreal is not winning a cup this year,, so i say get as much as you can for huet get price lots of games so next season he is the star he suppose to be and hopfully mtl can get a hold of a good aqquisition for Huet...

If you are a cup contending team you do not need a goalie, or you would not be a cup contending team. Huet may end up on a team that is in desperation to make the playoffs, but I doubt it...

He is not that good...

Huet will end up back in LA or maybe in Detroit becuase of Hasek's problem. Huet has played more games, but before Huet's injury, they were starting to alternate them game by game.

Do you consider detroit a cup contending team,, because they are and yeah they need a goalie for the playoffs ,,,, tampa yeah they are a cup contending team what do they need a goalie,,, secondly he is that good,,, watch him play with an open mind,,, he is nothing short of brilliant,,, look at his career stats i think i ve said this before,, never a GAA over 2.5 never a SV% lower then 909,, not many goalies can say that ,, huet just never got his shot,,,,
