If Price asks for $7M per yr I'd rather trade him. First of all, by looking at his stats there's no way he's earned Rinne money and he's only ever won one playoff round and that was ages ago. He hasn't stolen any games for us this yr despite being solid.

Second of all, if he's earning $7M per and starts slipping just a bit, the fans will be ALL over him and it won't be pretty. His value will plummet and we'll end up giving him away for peanuts like we've done in past.

Moreover, I don't think there's a goalie in the league that is worth $7M per. I like the Detroit model, where with sound defensive play and goal scoring - u can win the Cup with a mediocre goalie. And right now, the Habs need to reinforce those two areas. There's no point in having a $7M goalie if you can't score a goal.
