Carey Price isn't even in Robin Lehner's Top 5 Goaltenders

On Thursday, Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner decided to have a little fun with fans by answering questions directly via his Twitter account. Several interesting answers came out, including his opinion on his playoff opponent, Carey Price.

Lehner doesn't seem to be a big fan of the 2021 Carey Price, as he doesn't even appear in his top 5 goalies. They include Andrei Vasilevskiy, Tuukka Rask, Cal Petersen, John Gibson, Ilya Sorokin and Marc-Andre Fleury.

In answering a question directly about the Habs' goalie, Lehner had some good words, but nothing outlandish. He considers Price to be a good goalie, but that the man surpasses his qualities as a player.

"A great goalie and he seems to be a better person. It's not easy being a goalie in a Canadian market. [Vasilevskiy] is the best though." - Robin Lehner

When asked by a fan if Price was one of the best Canadian goalies of all time, Lehner instead identified Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy, as did his former teammate, Fleury.

An old tweet from Lehner came up in the discussion, as one user brought up the tweet in which he predicted a Caufield goal at his expense in the playoffs, a scenario that has come true.

"He scored one against me and I made a few saves on him. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough." - Robin Lehner

The Swedish keeper played the game and didn't hide from people's questions, even though some tried to poke him. It's all to his credit!
