I think the whole country got Price fever during that stretch when he won the Gold in Sochi then had his incredible 2015. I still give him a bit of benefit of the doubt in that he has had a porous defense and almost no 2-way forwards in front of him, but now his contract is actively preventing that from happening. With the amount they overpaid him you could pretty much bring in an entire 4th line or 3rd pairing. There is no relief in sight, they do have a bunch of picks but most of those kids won't (shouldn't*) see the NHL for a couple years. We'll see what Bergevin can fuck up by then.
