Price has started 21 games already and he's still awesome.
Want to compare Howard's second season to Price's second? I don't think you do... This is Price's third or fourth season? Besides, Howard's going through a four game slump while we're still the #1 team in the West. And most of it, isn't that he's slumping, so much as the defense is just not bothering to show up at all.
It's just unacceptable to have a GAA the past games of 4 and above, he doesnt look confident out there, the team isn't confident in him because of that, he can't use the stick nor support the defenders when pucks get dumped in (for example on wings pp when opposing team ice the puck he can go out and pass it to the red/blue line, instead he just stands there in his stupid net and whooops 10 extra seconds because howard can't use his stick), he doesn't play the puck when he clearly can instead he covers it up and get a faceoff in the defensive zone and wings isn't so good at faceoffs these days, i wonder wtf bernard is doing at the goalie practices, howard got tons of things to improve and we've seen nothing yet
Pretty sure we're one of the best faceoff teams in the league.
