I can't decide if Price is actually any good. He reminds me of a fairly lousy goalie the Blues had for a few years named Brent Johnson (who was actually not
shitty for a few months, then became terrible again). Sometimes he looks good and sometimes he looks like complete crap. And at all times, he doesn't really seem to care either way.
Johnson played that very similar stoic style to Price. He ended up having a pretty decent career as a backup and wasn't nearly as talented as Price, but Price kinda reminds me of him at times.
In the end, Price could be an elite goalie...I guess. I'm still glad I don't have to root for him.
