Goalies are playing longer now though, right?  Not Bower old, but still.

Lundqvist is 36, Rinne 35...Luongo is 39, but he's hitting a wall.

Can you believe that Tuukka Rask is 31 !?!

Is that actually a new development? Seems to me like top level goalies have always hung on around that long. Hasek, Brodeur, Cujo, Belfour, Vernon...

You could very well be right, I really didn't look into the history of it.

But I guess the point I was trying to make was that it wouldn't be unusual if Price played really well for years to come, even into his mid-late 30's.

Carey Price has a history of knee and other lower body injuries, so I'm not sure how long his body lasts in a position that is so heavily dependent on lower body flexibility and mobility.
It also feels his injury situation seems worst then it probably actually is because of the way MTL management communicated his injuries to the media. Always down playing his injuries and implying he would be back soon when he wasn't even close to a return. Led everyone to theorize and sensationalize.
Upon the wicked He will rain Jerseys; blue and white and burning waffles will be the portion of their cup.

Shinkaruk was the guy I wanted in the Goat's draft year.
