Comparing the Theodore trade and the Halak trade to the Roy trade ? Wow... they are three different cases. And Price is definitely the only one that could be close to Roy ever since we traded him.

When Theodore was traded, he was on decline. He had problems with his reputation because of his family being involved in gangs. After being traded to Colorado, he was never again the goalie that shined in 2002.

As for Halak, comparing him to Roy is completely irrelevant to me. Halak was awesome and still has some sparks left in him with the Blues. The thing is that Halak is a goalie that will shine when the pressure is at its peak. He's a goalie of hard work, perseverance and training. Basically, when we traded him, we traded hard work to keep pure talent.

Price is a source of inimaginable talent that 29 other teams in the NHL acknowledge. He is Montreal's most valuable player no questions asked.

It goes without saying that we will never consider trading him for a long time, but for the sake of the thread, I'll keep going that adding to that, the opening post was even saying trading him without getting a goalie in return. And what about the fact that we have no goalie prospect at all that could replace him ? Are you going to give 70 games to Budaj ? Cause Price can and he's one of the only goalies in the NHL that have in the past two years.

And the fact we drafted 3rd last year was linked to many reasons but most certainly not because of Price. Most of the time he was saving our face out there last year when offense was sitting on the bench ashamed and our defense was trying to level up to the big league.

At the moment, without Price, we are destined to miss the playoffs for at least the next 5 years. You really want to become Toronto that bad ?
