Canadiens' Carey Price Doesn't Get the Start Against the Vancouver Canucks

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IFebruary 15, 2009

As noted in my last article Jaroslav Halak will get the start against the Vancouver Canucks. Coach Guy Carbonneau made that decision on Saturday, but was it a good one? Let me explain.

Carey Price is from B.C. I'm pretty sure when the schedule came out, tonight's (Sunday) game was noted on his calendar. I'm pretty sure his parents, friends, and other family members are going to be there as well. But there's just one problem, Price will not be playing.

He struggled for the last few games he was in goal and Halak had a great game on Friday stopping 46 shots and helped the Habs win the game.

I agree with Carbonneau's decision. Carey Price is struggling a lot. What's wrong with him? Loss of confidence? Too much pressure? Is he still injured?

I'm pretty sure Price is disappointed and upset right now, but Carbonneau didn't have any other choice.

What do you think? Did Carbonneau make the right choice?
