IMO, Halak is a better goalie than Price. Both now and in the future. He's not pure butterfly and relies on reflexes. In my mind, a goalie relieng less on dropping down on every shot means a more durable better goalie (Brodeur plays like trillion games a year for like 20th year now or whatever, if he was a pure butterfly, he'd be broken into two parts by now) That said, his trade value is really low right now. He can't really be judged according to the very few games he gets to play in the NHL and this makes him incredibly hard for Montreal to sell for something meaningfull. I don't know what Montreal management wants to do with him, but I somehow get the idea that they don't count with him as their number one. I can see Halak signing a contract after this one in some bottom feeding contract and slowly work his way up with the team, he'll be getting better as the team gets better and when he's ready, the team will be ready for som nice cup runs.
