Who knows if Carey Price takes the time to sit in front of the television to watch the thrilling Tampa-Colorado finale. For him it would perhaps be too hard a contact with reality.

You can’t help but watch the work of Tampa goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevskiy. The skill and confidence of him with his gloves are exceptional. His stick on the ice, makes saves and cuts passes. He reads the game with a rare instinct. His sideways movements are lively, fast, precise and rarely overflows from the goalposts. In butterfly, he sticks to the ground and it takes a nice shot to beat him in the upper parts.

Six feet three inches, 225 pounds, he is strong as a horse, combative, never gives up. Undeniably, at 27, he is the best in his profession. In Friday’s Tampa victory in Denver, Avalanche tried everything, directing 37 shots fired at him everywhere.

It would be great if Carey Price realized that the time has come to move into her new home in British Columbia all year round. You will never be able to rise to such a level.


With all the will in the world, with knees walking from clinics to surgeons and her 35th birthday in a month and a half, is Carey Price still in the game?

Look at Vasilevskiy again and you will have the answer. We have rarely seen such a creepy thorn in the side of two CEOs. Beyond $ 10 million a year, Price certainly isn’t letting go, even though the handsome guy, since he was enlisted by Bob Gainey 17 years ago, has certainly pocketed $ 100 million not far away. USA of course.

Last year he had to abandon his teammates, his organization and the fans to cure an addiction. We know very well that his absence has cost more people their jobs.

Curiously, when he solved this problem he came back, but he got 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 Mr. Price is returned. One thing is certain, he is quite far from Mr. Vasilevskiy.
