The Canadiens goaltender said Tuesday that he respects Thomas’ decision to skip the team’s day with President Barack Obama. In a statement explaining the decision, Thomas said it “was not about politics or party,” something Price got a kick out of.
“He’s not political? That’s a pretty political move,” Price told reporters with a laugh. “It’s bold. Good on him, to stand up for what he believes in.”
Price was then asked if he would visit Prime Minister Stephen Harper if the Habs ever won the Cup.
“I’d be there with bells on. That’s just me,” he said. “I don’t really have much issues with our government. Everybody has their own opinions, and it’s absolutely amazing that [Thomas] stands up for what he believes in, so good on him.”
Canadiens defenseman Tomas Kaberle , who won the Cup with the B’s, made the trip to the White House, but offered little comment on the Thomas situation.
“It’s the guy’s opinion,” Kaberle said, “and that’s it.”
