Giguere on Canadiens Price: I dont like the way he competes

Wea€™re just about a quarter of the way through the 2018-19 NHL campaign and the Montreal Canadiens currently occupy a playoff spot. Ita€™s a surprising scenario considering the low expectations that surrounded this team coming out of training camp a€“ made all the more surprising considering the subpar play of franchise goalie Carey Price.

The 31-year-old is coming off the worst statistical season of his NHL career and is only in the first year of the monster eight-year, $84-million contract extension he signed in 2017 before his on-ice struggles really began. Ita€™s concerning for Canadiens fans, and retired NHL goalie-turned-analyst Jean-Sebastien Giguere doesna€™t like what hea€™s seen from the 2015 Hart and Vezina recipient either.

a€œI loved him so much. When I first started working on TV I was his biggest fan. I loved the way he played and stuff like that but for the last year-and-a-half, I dona€™t know, hea€™s given me a sour taste a little bit,a€ the 2003 Conn Smythe Trophy winner told Good Show Friday afternoon. a€œI dona€™t like the way he competes out there. I dona€™t like his body language. Hea€™s supposed to be the leader of that team. A leader should show a good image and thata€™s not what you get sometimes from Carey.a€

Price is one of 30 netminders to appear in at least 10 games this season and out of those 30 goalies, Pricea€™s 2.99 goals-against average ranks 23rd and his .899 save percentage ranks 24th.
