If you keep Halak as your starter and Price as the backup (not saying this will be the case) but at least then perhaps you can get Price on the cheap for say a two year deal. (not saying 500K of course, but less then the 2.2M he could make now)

Imo the hardest contracts to guage at going to be Price this summer and Markov next, as I could see him getting a huge payday, 8M a year perhaps, unless the Habs try and do something funny like other teams are doing like Hossa's contract.
No way get Price locked up cheaper than he is now. He is a premier young goalie. Many teams offer 3m plus and give up a pick to try to Penner like steal him from us.
