I doubt Price gets traded but if he does and for a goalie, my guess would have to be Vancouver since they have many injuries right now and could use some help. But I doubt it involves Hodgson.
I'm not saying they are going to trade Toews but they are going to have cap problems starting next year when they will need to sign Toews, Kane and Keith

Well depending on how long he will miss,I doubt they can win without a #1 there especially with Sedin out and Demitra probably never coming back

Price for Martin Brodeur.

Biggest trade since Gretzky...

Makes as much sense as the rest of the crap being spewed lately.

The only way I trade Price is with Plekanec and Kostitsyn to Chicago is in a package for Toews, Sharp and the better of Crawford/Niemi.

Another option would be for the admins to classify Eklunds rumour page as "not a credible site" as they rightly do for so many other rubbish generating "publications".

In my view, it doesn't matter what 'Eklund' or anyone else writes (hello Jack Todd) that infers that Price will or should be traded, as it is more than evident that Bob Gainey correctly views Price as a future franchise-type player (i.e. equivalent value to his team as Luongo, Ovechkin, Iginla, Malkin, et.al. are to theirs) over the long run.

While it is true that Price's performance in the 2nd half of last season was relatively poor, and his stats after his 6 games played this season are not pretty - we who have observed this team's games KNOW (as Bob Gainey obviously knows) that there have been MANY contributing factors (I can detail them here, but I think you all know what they are), NONE of which include Carey Price's skills or abilities.

p.s. There are only a small number of goalies historically who have performed at an 'all-star' caliber at 22 years old (e.g. P.Roy) - The majority who were starters in the NHL from 20 to 22 yrs old were not already stars in the NHL. Case in point: compare Price's record with Luongo's record for his seasons spanning 20-22 years old:

Price @ 20 - 2007-08 Montreal Canadiens - 41 GP / 24W-12L / 2.56 gaa / .920 sp / 3 so /
Price @ 21 - 2008-09 Montreal Canadiens - 52 GP / 23W-16L / 2.83 gaa / .905 sp / 1 so /
Price @ 22 - 2009-10 Montreal Canadiens - 6 GP / 2W-4L / 3.36 gaa / .886 sp / 0 so /

Luongo @ 20 - 1999-00 New York Islanders - 24 GP / 7W-14L / 3.25 gaa / .904 sp / 1 so /
Luongo @ 21 - 2000-01 Florida Panthers - 47 GP / 12W-24L / 2.44 gaa / .920 sp / 5 so /
Luongo @ 22 - 2001-02 Florida Panthers - 58 GP / 16W-33L / 2.77 gaa / .915 sp / 4 so /
...and the corollary to this is vis-a-vis Jaro Halak: This is a 24 year-old who is a 'backup' goalie only because he is behind a future franchise player (superstar?) in Carey Price in Montreal. On (roughly) half of the NHL teams today, Halak would be starting 50% or more of a team's games.

The reasons Halak is still in Montreal, is that he is cheap, good, and most importantly a very patient individual who has not (apparently) made any "play me or trade me" demands. But this can only last so long.

I suspect that Gainey is tickled that Halak is playing well (putting up W's and earning more starts), so that he can maximize the return on Halak in an inevitable trade (I expect that he will be gone long before Santa comes for his annual visit)...

We know there is absolutely no truth to this so called rumor now that Eklund as reported it....

He did however accomplish what he set out to do when he reported this...A ton of hits from Habs fans on his website....

TSN is reporting the injury too.

Even so, Luongo can't be traded as injured players can't be in a deal as they have to pass physicals.

I think it would have to depend on the injury and the team knowing and accepting it. Seeing that Luongo got hurt in the game and then let in 4 third period goals tells me it was a significant injury hampering his play.

Luongo is getting older, and it seems like he has been getting more and more injuries these last couple of years which would be a cause of concern.

That's just straight up untrue. The team receiving the player can ask for a physical for the injured player before completing the trade, but there's nothing iron-clad about it.

You can't trade a player that is disclosing an injury, the team has the right to do the physical and have the NHL veto it if needed.

Even so, why would the Habs trade a 22 year old for a player injured, plus his salary will still double Price's when Price re-signs as a RFA.

Makes no sense.

AKA Eklund is a huge tool and doesn't have any sources, but yet is still a valid source here.

Eklund doesn't know the definition of Cap Space, which is pretty convenient when you are in the business of making **** up.
