Carey Price's return will have minimal effect

Carey Price will join his teammates tomorrow (Monday) for testing and evaluation. His return to practice with the group is still a long way off, as he was healing a knee injury before leaving the team. The Canadiens had even stopped his rehab due to knee swelling...

He is not coming back as a savior, far from it, he who is not at 100% physically, not to mention that he still has not trained at full capacity.

At first, we are still very far from Carey Price's return in a regular game. There are still many steps to take.

Secondly, he couldn't be a hero even if he was at the top of his game since the Habs of the moment have far too many flaws in their game, as Martin Biron pointed out.

"It's because of all this that Price's return is going to have a minimal effect. Because right now, the Habs have a lot of other problems, among others, with the penalty kill game. When I watch the Habs play, I see many deficiencies on defense and I see a team that gives away too many scoring chances. If I have to point to anything, I would say the team's defense is a big problem," said Biron.

So let's not focus on Carey Price and wish the tide would turn. He's not the one who's going to be playing in Montreal this time, OKAY?
