I'm pretty sure he would have.

In Gauthier's shoes, would you have forced a struggling goalie who desperately wants out to stay and play when you have a viable alternative? This is hindsight but we have to assume those reports that said the team was happy with Price's attitude toward the end of last season were genuine and that management were reasonably confident he would come back this year in the right frame of mind.

If Gauthier had reasons to believe Carey was disgruntled, the only way he still chooses him would be if Halak had been even more adamnant and said he wasn't staying no matter what.
