Who cares about stats? Never shows how good or bad the team in front of the goalie plays.

Anyway, no team in the NHL wants 2 Elite Starter Goalies. Firstly you can't spend 10+millions on goalies in the salary cap NHL and secondly, you have controversies all the time.

And lastly: It takes a certain kind of goalie to play in MTL. Somone who can withstand the pressure of playing in Bell Centre and someone who can deal with the media. Luongo has a hard time in Vancouver. The media in Montreal would eat him alive. Price is the perfect goalie for the Habs.

EDIT: Concerning the OP - MTL would be wise to just keep Eller and the picks. This is a good draft and there is no need to make shortcuts and possibly end up with a Phil Kessel situation.
