Why Carey Price Is the Probable NHL Goalie Of the Decade

nhl

Carey Price plays for Montreal Canadiens, one of the highly rated franchises in the NHL. He was a highly regarded first-round draft pick in 2005. He has lived up to his expectations, in the 2014-15 campaign, he finished with a 1.96 GAA and .933 saving value. He also won and carried the Hart Memorial Trophy.

Price has also appeared in seven All-Star games, and his performance is in no doubt. He is the best goalie in Canadiens history, in the 2010-11 season, he tied for the third SV percentage of .920 and also became the sixth-best GAA with 2.40.

Other goalies who may compete against Price are Henrik Lundqvist and Sergei Bobrovsky. Henrik has been to four All-Star games. In the 2011-12 season, he had 1.97 GAA and .930 SV percentage and won the Vezina Trophy. In 2014 season, he had some success with Blueshirts since they made it to Stanley Cup Final. He is also Rangers’ best goalie in history.

Sergei Bobrovsky is among the best goalie who has adequate numbers to put him in the competition. He started his career with Philadelphia Flyers, but his star didn’t shine until 2012 while with Columbus Blue Jackets. In the 2012-13 campaign, he finished with .932 SV percentage and a GAA of 2.00. He also won his first Vezina Trophy. He won the second Vezina Trophy in the 2016-17 season and a record of .931 SV percentage and a 2.06 GAA. Last season, he backed his team to its first series win, eliminating the highly favored Tampa BAY Lightning. Being a two-time winner of Vezina Trophy makes him also to be the probable goalie of the decade.
