Just to see | The Journal of Montreal

I wonder if Carey Price takes the time to sit in front of the TV to watch the thrilling final between Tampa and Colorado. For him it would perhaps be too hard a contact with reality.

You can’t help but stare at Tampa goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy’s work. His skill and confidence with his gloves is exceptional. His stick flat on the ice, he’s making saves and cutting passes. He reads the game with a rare instinct. His lateral movements are lively, quick, precise and he rarely runs over his goalposts. In the butterfly he stays on the ground and it takes quite a throw to beat him in the upper parts.

Six feet and three inches, 225 pounds, he’s strong as a horse, fierce, he never gives up. At 27, he is undoubtedly the best in his field. On Friday, in Tampa’s win in Denver, the Avalanche tried everything and lined up 37 shots, fired all over the place, at him.

It would be nice if Carey Price realized the time had come to move year-round to his new home in British Columbia. He will never be able to reach such a level.


With knees going from clinics to surgeons and his 35th birthday a month and a half away, is Carey Price still in the game?

Watch Vasilevskiy again and you will have the answer. Rarely have we seen such a disturbing thorn in the side of two managing directors. Beyond $10 million a year, it’s certainly not Price who’s letting go, although the handsome lad certainly hasn’t bagged far from $100 million since he was drafted by Bob Gainey 17 years ago…US, of course.

Over the past year, he has had to leave his teammates, organization and supporters to treat an addiction. We know very well that his absence cost several people their jobs.

Oddly enough, solving this problem, he came back, but he was injured, and at the time of reading these lines we still don’t know how to organize the work in front of the Canadian’s nets because we still don’t know where is Mr Price returned. One thing is certain, he is quite a distance from Mr. Vasilevskiy.
