Carey Price, en route to another MVP season?

From ESPN's Pierre LeBrun:

[Is] it possible Price has in store a season that could actually top his 2014-15 campaign, which saw him named the league's best goalie and MVP?

I mean, why not? He's 28 years old, still plenty of room to grow. Can you imagine for a moment if the best is still yet to come?

"He's one of those rare guys that you really say has the whole package,'' former Coyotes assistant GM and goalie whisperer Sean Burke said over the phone Thursday night.

"He's athletic to begin with, technically he's very, very sound, he's one of those players that has very few weaknesses, if any,'' continued Burke. "I'm sure every team says 'Let's get traffic and don't let him see the shot.' If he can see it, he's going to stop it. Mentally, that's such an advantage when you know the other team is going into the game saying, 'How are we going to beat this guy?' It reminds me of Dominik Hasek in his prime, the other team is half-beaten before they hit the ice.''
