    Price is certainly making a strong bid for the starting goalie position for Team Canada.

      Joey, Canada sure is weak when it comes to goal tending. Whats up with that? The USA has a boat load to choose from.

        Yeah! Big ???? between the pipes, Was at the game last night sitting close to the net in the zone closest to the Habs bench. Not sure how it looked on TV, but from up close and behind the net he looked very very sharp. Best I’ve seen. Plus he has experience at the international level.

    oh, come on. Jagr and Brodeur at the TOP of their games? if those two were at the top of their games, the Devs wouldn’t be sitting lower-middle of the pack.

      Dude, if you have a problem with a 41 year old being the leading scorer on your team, it shouldn’t be with the 41 year old, but the rest of your team. Brodeur has a 2.08 GAA and a 0.913 save percentage. He’s playing better than Schneider, and is definitely not the problem.

      • ibieiniid - Nov 13, 2013 at 11:08 AM

        i didn’t say they were problems. but if you have Brodeur and Jagr at their career best, you’re winning more games than the Devils have been able to.

      • georgejarkko - Nov 13, 2013 at 12:27 PM

        agreed – if two of the best at their positions EVER were at the top of their games they’d be more-than-able to carry the Devils

      • joey4id - Nov 13, 2013 at 4:36 PM

        Both these guys cannot play 82 games and be fit for the playoffs. No way they will be able to play every second night at their age. So! Yeah! Devils are in a canoe paddling up stream.
