Former goalie coach says Price has deteriorated

Made me think of a certain other French-Canadian goalie for some reason.

Very odd. Price much like Fleury has tons of natural raw talent. I almost feel like had he landed anywhere but Montreal he'd be right on track to being a top goalie in the league.

I feel like the general fan population has no idea how important a goaltending coach is.

I feel like the general fan population has no idea whether or not a goaltending coach is important to a goalie that has made it to the NHL.

I've always thought that he could thrive better in another town.
Maybe I'm over rating him? :shrugs:

There definitely has to be something to it. Why does Bryzgalov and Smith go to Phoenix and work with Burke and look like a world beater and either A) move on and look totally lost or B) look totally lost before getting there.

Phoenix is a good example of good goaltending coaching coupled with a strong defensive first strategy making an average goaltender looked like a top 10 guy.

Bryz went from being great on a very defensive team to being good on a poor defensive team until he was run into the ground. I'm not sure what that shows at all.

Not sure where you are going with that, but Brzy is an average goalie.
