We're getting used to it, but it's always so interesting and relevant. Former head coach Bob Hartley was back on Jean-Charles Lajoie's show on BPM Sports this morning, and he talked about Carey Price's career.

"Although he'll never admit it, Chris Kreider has held Carey Price's incredible career back." - Bob Hartley

When you think about it, this is absolutely true. Recall that at the time of the Kreider contact, Carey was in the conversation as one of the best players in the world (not just unanimously the best goalie in the world, but also, a true of true MVP).
Also, at the time of this contact with Kreider, Carey really looked like he was on his way to leading the Montreal Canadiens to a 25th Stanley Cup (or at least, to a final). It's easy to say several years later, but it would have been really interesting to see.
Indirectly, Chris Kreider ended Carey Price's career with this move on May 17, 2014:

Hartley also looks back at Price's career, in general, and what he has to say is really interesting.
It's pretty amazing to remember how dominant Carey was. A season of 66 games played, nine shutouts, 44 wins, 16 losses, with a 1.96 GAA and a .933 SV%... We're not likely to see that again anytime soon.
Unfortunately, then the knee problems started and the numbers dropped drastically for Carey.
Do you think Kreider put the brakes on Price's career? Do you think the CH would have won the Stanley Cup that year?
