This is no longer the Eastern European Gentleman's Club that it once was.

If he decides to go it won't be just Price but Price could be the straw that broke the camel's back. A new system with a new coach plus an almost new roster, the old guard is slowly being cleaned out.

I can see a whole new batch of defenseman playing here within a year or two. Maybe it's better to bring in/ bring up a whole new bunch of guys together to play defense. I'm a fan of having a young Fab Four on D.
That being said this is from thefourthperiod.com site:

According to the Gazette, the Canadiens may let Plekanec hit the open market next month and go after a bigger center via free agency or trade.

Outside of Plekanec, Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks is the other pending UFA center who can play on a first line.

It's also believed the Canadiens are interested in bolstering their blueline and have been linked to Nashville defenseman Dan Hamhuis and Ottawa rearguard Anton Volchenkov.

If that were to happen not only would Plekanec have to be let go, but other potential and bigger moves would have to be made to fit that into the cap.
