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."
The year he was fantastic, Huet was their starter for the most part and had similar stats. ****ing Huet. Goes to show the team was helping the goalies out more then the goalies playing.

Like others said, right now, Giroux has more value anyway you look at it. He has been the better player without a doubt. I am very skeptical about Price and most of his hype is from draft position. I know he is young, Im tired of that arguement, but unless he does something different, right now he could be at his best. The chances he turns into a franchise goalie is very slim. Very few goalies turn into one.

Its easier for a forward to achieve their potential then a goalie can. Like you said, you dont make this deal when you have Brovosky and Eriksson waiting in the wings.
