Can Carey Price handle all the stresses that are being dealt his way?

Can the young goaltender bring the cup back to Montreal?

Carey Price is a great young goaltender with lots of potential, but I believe that the Canadiens have a tendency to burn out there you goaltenders by overplaying them and putting them in too many crucial win or lose situations.

Price has shown signs that he can be one of the best goaltenders in the league, but its up to the Canadiens not to bestow the young goal tender with so much intense pressure.

I believe that the Canadiens have potential to make it to the Stanley cup finals if the can stay healthy and get good goal tending from there goaltenders Halak, Price, who both show signs that they can handle high pressure situations at times.

What do you think?
