Also, trading Halak before we sign Price is a horrible decision. This will allow Price to "drive up his market" since we have no other option.
1) Whenever you trade a 9th rounder for a 13th overall pick (that is panning out) and a 3rd round pick, you've done good asset management. The fact Halak even played 1 NHL game is incredible.
2) Trading now let's the Habs brass know what they have
the draft. Wait too long and maybe the offer is off the table.
3) Sign Price before and then teams know you are dealing Halak, therefore lowering his value. It's a double-edged sword.
