It is crying from people who do not want to pay the price. Don't complain, just don't go. Nobody cares. The way most of the people are making comments, reads to me as if they are criticizing the business hosting the signing. Regardless of how some fans feel about him, he is a legend and has had one of the most illustrious careers in the history of the sport.
Price IS a relative nobody. WJC champion?!?!? WOW!! There are thousands of WJC "Champions"; many of which work a regular 9-5 like me at this point in their lives.
That means his autograph fee should be the same as Jaromir Jagr?!?!? Jaromir's signed items are certainly "worth" a helluva lot more than Price.
2X Stanley Cup Champion, 5x Art Ross Trophy winner as the NHL's scoring champion, Hart Trophy winner for league MVP in 1999, Olympic gold in 98, Bronze in 06, 12x All Star, 8th (and climbing) all time leading goal scorer in NHL history, most GWG's in NHL history, etc etc
They are not even in the same stratoshphere in terms of place in hockey history.E
EDIT: Let me know which parts of my "argument" don't hold up.
You clearly have an axe to grind so agree to disagree I guess.
