Really just depends on team defense, how much support he's getting, and what kind of offense they provide in front of him.
Technically speaking, he's already one of the best goalies in the world. His mature mindset in such a tough market like Montreal is unreal. His positioning is unreal. He is a true phenom, and he's still not even really in his prime yet. I think now that he's starting to settle down in terms of getting married and starting a family, that will really bring some balance to his life, and help his overall game and consistency. I can't even begin to tell you how many NHL goalies I've talked to during the lockout that mention the benefits of having a family life. It makes a goalie realize they don't have to live and die by wins and losses. Price is already such a relaxed and even-keeled goalie with a great pro mentality, but I really think you're going to start seeing him play even more clutch and consistent over the next few seasons and beyond......Montreal just has to play better in front of him. Then he'll be Top-5 fantasy goalie.
But no matter how good he is with his game, if they don't provide him with support, he may never be a Top-5 fantasy goalie.
