Carey Price: A Single Voice of Reason

March 25th, 2010 by Rocket All Habs Leave a reply »
“Don’t trade Carey Price,” said Scott, after watching last night's game.

A caller to a Montreal sports radio show disagreed. His name was Andrew, and he gave the usual lengthy and exaggerated preamble that was intended to convey credibility. Andrew had played hockey for years, even a little goal, and perhaps did one term as the Pope. (Sorry, I stopped paying close attention to his introduction.)

"I'm fed up with Price," said Andrew, "He was totally out of position [on Tim Connolly's goal]."

Unfortunately, Andrew had failed to notice that the Sabres had a six-on-four advantage at the time.

Any knowledgeable hockey fan would surely recognize that Price played an outstanding game. But this is Montreal, where reason often takes a winter vacation.

And it not only happens with fans that sometimes let their passions get in the way of hockey sense. It even occurs with so-called professionals.

Shortly after the game, a headline appeared in the online version of the Montreal Gazette that read, "Price blows it for Habs in Buffalo." It was attached to a game report by Pat Hickey.
