So if Anaheim were to part with Hiller and Ryan or Perry for Price and Hamrlk, you'd be an idiot not to take the deal. Habs have about $4.7M in cap right now, so to trade Price and Hamr gives them $9M in cap which is more than enough for the above mentioned players. That would give us a proven play off goalie, and a big physical scoring winger that we've needed for some time.

The biggest problem with that is unless the cap goes up substantialy next year, we've locked into several players at huge contracts for several years and won't have much if any cap space to resign RFA's. That being said:

Cammy - Plex - Perry/Ryan
A. Kosty - Gomez - Gionta
Moen - Eller - Pouliot
Darche - Boyd - Lapiere

Markov - OB
Spacek - Subban
Gill - Gorges

Hiller
Auld

A little weak on D, but solid goaltending and one hell of an offense!
I agree on the bold area but I say no to this trade simply cause if you get a guy like Perry or Ryan, it's Ak and not Price. Hiller just has good has Price but way more expensive so side way move there.
Makes no sense for me to talk about trading Price and most rumour are fuled by him not being signed yet.
