The goalie market is usually pretty minimal. The Toskala trade was nice for San Jose but it was only draft pick, however, then you look at a guy like Bryzgalov who was put on waivers since there was no market for him.

Really anyone is tradable, so yes it could happen.
All depends on what a team wants/needs.
If come January and a team is in the hunt and only really needs a goalie to put them over the top.... one never knows what could happen.

Hey guys don't get me wrong, i have no hate for Price. I just feel for the teams purpose, as in what we can get for a return at the moment compared to, let's say next years end, if he were to have 1/2 another disastrous year.

I am thinking Vinnie, but i could be way wrong. Maybe some big blue chip center.
I have felt since late last year that any team playing in front of Halak seems to play with more confidence then Price.

Habfan1968, this has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with just last nights team performance, it's something i have noticed since last year !

It took MAF five pro seasons to get it right in Pittsburgh. You have to give goalies time. Would anyone here trade MAF right now?

At which age Ryan Miller or Roberto Luongo comes to their own? Gotta give Price the time and he'll be money for us. He even started to.

I mean you're hoping he plays until 38 if not retires at 36 or when he feels he can't compete at the NHL level and then I assume we don't have to pay him the remainder or maybe insurance covers it. But I assume if you retire and are not 'let go' then there I wouldn't think we'd pay the balance. So at 8.33m, which is basically 1m more than Gomez for 45-50 goals (that is a considerable amount of extra wins), he's worth every penny.
That is if you sign him.

If you are ready to pay him that much wait for UFA and sign him after clearing cap room.

Price is extremely overrated in both potential and current ability. I'd be all for trading him though.
I'm sure most NHL GM's would disagree. He would be one of the top 20-25 tradeable assets in the NHL right now. Young goalie with good contract status and already nearly 2 years starting experience plus high upside.

Vinny making 10 mil a year is not as desireable as you think he is, half the teams in the NHL can't afford him and another 1/3 can't make nearly 8 mil cap room for him.

I am pretty sure that BG wouldn't trade his prodigy, but what if Halak could be the #1 in Montreal ? If BG didn't think he could, he probably wouldn't still be here right ?

Edit: we would have to shed salary wouldn't we ?


#1 -What could you expect to get for a goalie (Price) who has yet to "establish" himself as a bonafied consistent NHLer?

#2 - Vinny's NO-TRADE Cluase kicked into effect July 1st - he has already indicated he does not want to play in Montreal!

Earl............well said.

Price may (or may not) ever reach his expected potential - but Habs are not currently stuck with an Albatross of a (current ) contract on him.

Link and or proof please ? Hear say only.
I would be willing to bet you that Mr Burke west on the 401 would take Price at almost any cost !

I wouldn't do it for Vinny, but I'd for sure explore some options for a Price trade.

If Lecavalier really wanted to play for the Canadiens, would he have signed an 11 year contract extention with Tampa or would he have waited to reach UFA status and sign with Montreal?
