(ah, the memories...great times...the hate...so much wonderful hate) Well the deal is...still available, however, the names are different. In the original deal Montreal would have received a serious #1 goalie in return. While I can't say the name of the team, Montreal now is getting their #2. but a much better top 6 forward...(and a serious prospect who will be adored in that city)
Everyone add their 2 cents in who they would think this is, not saying it is real, but if it was everyone speculate and say who.
Why can't he say the name of the team? Anyway, there's not enough information there but I think we can eliminate all the teams with number ones that are already of equal or better value than Price, or just not likely to be traded: luongo, brodeur, miller, etc. I would also think it unlikely he will remain in the eastern conference, and definitely not in our division. That would eliminate at least 15 or so teams:
I would rule the above teams out. Maybe St-Louis?
