I don't know when or why the fans divided themselves into Team Price and Team Halak. You don't have to like both goalies (personally, I like both of them a lot), but I dont' see any reason for people to mindlessly bash the other one. It's one thing to say that Halak is playing great. That's perfectly fine and true. But to call Price an AHL goalie in the same sentence is ridiculous. Price may not be playing up to the incredibly high standards that everyone has set for him, but he is not an AHL goalie.
Montreal is blessed to have two goalies who have been playing pretty solid hockey on most nights. Heck, on most nights the goalies have been the only ones to show up to a game and gave their team every chance to win. There's a lot of teams that can't say the same about their goalies. Ask the Flyers or the Leafs (particularly when Toskala is in nets). We should be happy to have two solid guys between the pipes instead of sitting here ripping one or the other on a nightly basis.
