Actually, even Fleury is too much.

I think the only rational French Canadian "starter" + Top 6 for Price trade I can come up with is Pascal Leclaire and Michalek for Price.

...but yeah, still think Eklund's just getting screwed with.

But he had to trade Halak.... just like he had to trade Sergei... I mean, when have the habs been pro-active and made a significant trade? They're very conservative and like to build within.

I'm waiting for the Price/Desjardins controversy. You know it's coming.

How's Jonathan Bernier doing? I'm not saying this is the goaltender we are targeting, but, he's young, doesn't have too much values, does not cost a lot.

I think his value his less than Price's value, that way, we coul fetch an interesting top 6 forward.

But then again, I would still prefer having Price, I think, like most of us that its bogus but what the heck, summer is so slow on hockey matters, seams like it'S been more than 4 months that the habs have played their last game...

Can you imagine what type of summer the habs fan would have had if they didn't went to the semi-final? With a boring draft and and a mediocre UFA market,... arg! Thank god we had a nice playoff run!

I really think the team is San Jose. They're looking to make a major change and I don't think they'll go into the season with Nittymaki as their #1 goalie. But I don't see a goalie coming back our way from them. The only team that I can see that happening with is Chicago but they can't take salary back that I'm sure we'd try to get rid of with Price to get a younger cheaper defenseman (like in the Rivet trade).

So what I see is:

1) Price + Hamrlik for Setoguchi + Demers + 1
2) Price + Hamrlik + AK for Setoguchi + Vlasic

The reason San Jose would be interested in Hamrlik is their veteran defenseman Blake retired this off-season.

Then I see us going after Niemi or Turco. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if we've already offered Niemi a contract in case we can't sign Price.

For everyone saying they wouldn't sign Niemi and trade Price, remember it's all about asset management. If you can land a top 6 forward + a top pairing defenseman (or a high prospect projected to be there) and sign Niemi to replace him by giving up draft picks in a weak draft, you consider it. Niemi just won a Cup and took over a couple of those series by himself. I'd be as nervous with him as our #1 as Price even though I'm a Price supporter.

And for those saying we shouldn't have traded Halak if we were going to deal Price, Halak isn't worth a large contract given a stellar 6 month run. It's dangerous. I know I'd prefer Niemi + Eller + Setoguchi + Demers + Auld for Price + Halak + Hamrlik + Moore.

It makes us younger, more skillful with a somewhat lateral move (maybe a slight decrease) in goal for a major improve both at forward and defense.

If we are trading our one and only Goalie that should have been our starter over Halak with great potential to San Jose I want this package.

Ak46+Price+Hamrlik for Setoguchi+Demers+Couture+Vlasic+a 1st

You're not going to get Setoguchi, Demers, Couture and Vlasic and a 1st lol remember, Hamrlik and AK46 are dumps from us... if we get Demers alone to replace Hamrlik and AK46 drops to the 3rd line to play with Eller, that's a pretty good top 9... i'd rather keep AK46 in that situation because he is a top 10 pick and the third line would be great for him in that situation

I'm just trying to Emphasize that us giving up Price would require al ot more than this mythical "starter goalie" god knows what age, and a top 6. Gauthier didn't keep Price just to trade him for a toss in top 6 and another goalie whom we probably can't afford.

nonesense for SJ. If I go with that logic, SJ would be better of signing Niemi and keeping all their youngsers... Seriously guys, Price ain't going anywhere lol

Let me guess... it's because they're so bogus that you're reading and posting in this thread, right? Otherwise, you wouldn't be here, correct?

People need to stop pretending that they're above all and take what they want out of the information out there. Don't want to believe it? Fine, stay away. Wanna believe it? Fine as well and give your comments! Is it that complicated? Really?

FWIW, I think links to that site contravene Site Rule #5 anyway, so if I see them, I'd be cutting them out...

Funny thing about "DT" is that it started off just as me, sending them BS I just made up pretending to be connected.

The funny part is that I stopped doing that like 6 months ago, and they are still somehow posting rumours by "DT"

Price for Leighton and Carter.

That would be funny seeing Leighton coming in as our top goalie seeing as he was not good enough for us, not too long ago.

I was thinking out of all of the teams in the NHL that would be able to do a deal it would be LA or Columbus.

LA wants to win soon, if not now. Price in that "no pressure" market with that young team may flourish. The Habs may also like to get the young French goalie in Jonathan Bernier, he is NHL ready, but would he be an ideal goalie with Auld?

If Habs were to go LA bound I hope that top 6 guy is Simmonds or Brown.

In Columbus. Mason and Price in a trade makes sense. Two young good goalies who had off years and may succeed in a new venue. Price once again would be in a "no pressure" city. Mason to me is a goalie who may flourish in a pressure city like Montreal. It makes sense in a way. Maybe the top 6 guy could be Quebecer Derick Brassard?

Those make a little sense, the whole rumour doesn't, but if I was to peg teams and players I am focusing on those two.

I could see a Price/Niemi trade making sense for both sides, assuming Chicago is willing to throw in a top prospect to make it work. I think Price's attitude and style will fit much better in Chicago than it ever will in Montreal. Sr. Bowman seems to really believe in the kid so that has to help if there are any trade talks between the two sides.

If Niemi is going to cost Chicago too much coin it could be one of their better options if Montreal is interested.

I don't think Niemi gets traded. Either the Hawks sign him at the arbitrator's price or he becomes UFA.

Niemi would be quite mentally destroyed after not even 1/4 of the season as MTL starter.. People underrate Price its unbelievable.. Chicago would be too strong for the league with Price in the net.
