Price was the Habs starting goalie last year... please don't go down the Shafer path of the thinking depth forwards are more important to the team than the starting goalie. Price didn't play great last year (was fantastic the year before that), but please don't go down that path.
If each player achieves their potential, Price is IMMENSELY more valuable than Giroux.
That being said, you don't cut such a deal if you think Bob has any shot of being a successful starter, etc. or if maybe Schneider can be had for less. However, Montreal looking for Giroux in return is FAR from "crazy."
