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.
Is that the Johnson that backed up in PIT for a few years? He always killed NJ but then again all backups do. If you want to shut down NJ, play your backup.
