For Price, some actually wanted to sign him longterm, but with Halak around, it made no sense to do so. He also had rough times in Mtl.
It was just after the Halak trade, but yes, he was in ''prove what you are'' stage.

Subban is ahead of both coming out of ELC and has more of case for a long-term deal. But his leverage right now is minimal unless some team wants to look like dicks and offer sheet a guy after the whole league cried poor for months.
