Mike Smith is too much of a wild card. Especially with the system Phoenix plays, I doubt he'd be able to replicate his success in Montreal.
The only circumstance that I could think of trade Price would be if we drafted a stud goalie, and he had proven he's ready to step up and take the starter's job.
I could see Theodore as an option, there is also other young goalie that are pushing for a NHL role. And often we see a goalie coming from nowhere and become a solid NHLer. Who is the next Thomas ? the next waived goalie who will become a Bryzgalov? The next Mike Smith ? The next Kiprusoff traded for a 2nd round ? Only teams without a goalie can be opportunist enough to get them
Well, it would be fun to revisit this thread once Couturier, Subban and Price reach their Prime.
