To those that think we should have held on to Halak until Price was signed and then trade Jaro is a perfect example of bargaining under bad faith. If Price accepts a smaller contract and then they trade Halak making him the starter, him and his camp would be royally pissed. Not a good thing to do with your starter if in fact you have made the decision to go with him in the future.

I think managers have to do what they have to do to win but by doing it the way PG has done it clears the air for the team and there is no ambiguity, everyone knows Price will be the starter. Carey will be signed to a reasonable deal and term, he is not going to hold out as this is a big year for him and would destroy his reputation imo. *****ing over $500,000 up or down is kind of pointless as he is now the guy and will have to deliver whether he has earned it yet or not if he wants to become a big money goaltender in the future.
