Canadiens' Carey Price reveals recent struggles with alcoholism

Depression is the root cause of most addictions if not all, even in professional athletes.  Carey is lucky in the sense that he can take time off and get the help he needs, which is unfortunately not the case for most people.  Hope he gets better/feels better soon.

Gotta feel for Carey.

Obviously he has had a tremendous career, but anyone who knows anything about goaltending knows this was supposed to be THE guy. His career was supposed to have amounted to more.


This was the Wayne Gretzky, Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby of goaltending, and he simply has not lived that experience. 

Obviously he's revered in Montreal (his mural is on the side of the Bell Centre), but playing behind so many poor teams for so many years ultimately just wasted his potential.


An entire generation of young goaltenders have been coached to play like Carey Price, his impact on the game and the way it's taught is immeasurable. He should be immensely proud of what he's accomplished for this game, but you know he wanted more.
