What if Price...

is injured during the first game of the season and will miss the rest of the season?

You are Pierre Gauthier, you need to do something.

1- Go with Sanford/Desjardins/Auld

2 - Sign one of the remaining free agent to a 1-year deal

3 - Another option...

If you go with a UFA, here's a list of candidate :

José Théodore
Vesa Toskala
Ray Emery
Manny Legace
Antti Niemi

P.S. This isn't a jinx thread or w/e, it's just a thread to pass some time and see how would a fan react if you were the GM.

If it's for one game, i play auld and call up desjardins. I don't think sanford can be called up without going through waivers, although he might clear them.

Simple. Bring up Desjardins..make him a tandem with Auld and pray for us to tank at the bottom of the league and we get to draft Sean Couturier 1st overall. Then, next year, Price comes back healthy and maybe he will sign for much cheaper(considering that he will sign this summer for 1 season) then we save more cap space. Maybe then sign a Joe Thornton in the off season or whatever.

He's missing the entire season and possibly the playoffs.

Granting the premise that for whatever reason Price was going to miss the entire season....

I'd give a one year deal to Legace or Emery, probably, as insurance. However, neither is much better than Auld. Might role the dice with Sanford/Auld/Desjardins at this stage.

Niemi is the best goalie available, but he isn't a short term solution.

Grabbing someone via trade, one of those buried AHL warrior types, would be another option. Guys like Craig Anderson, Michael Leighton, etc. have done well in recent years. There are a few more like them out there (including possibly one in our organization in Sanford).

If price is out for the entire season, Desjardins would be brought up in my plan. no better time to see if he can handle the NHL pace.

If Price were to go down for the season, they'd definately call up Sanford or Desjardin and watch them closely. If they were to faulter then we'd go outside of the organization for a replacement. I doubt Niemi would be available by the time the season started so we might see either a trade or Theo coming in temporarily imo.

Do both of you think that we are going to in the running for worst team of the league even without Price? I find that unlikely.

I certainly think so. Last year Montreal was a fringe playoff team that relied on excellent goaltending from whoever was in net. Without a starting netminder, how well do you think this team will do?

What if Price is injured during the first game of the season...

... I start a thread on Price's injury and how lazy he is for getting injured, while discussing how Halak is currently not injured and therefore the better goalie.

Last year Montreal was a fringe playoff team because of injuries and the overhaul of the whole team.

Do you remember how bad we were in the late 90s and early 00s? Pretty awful, yet we never once even had a top 5 pick. It takes an extra-ordinary amount of suck for a team to be 30th in the NHL. Heck look how terrible Toronto is, yet they still weren't able to be the worst team in the league.

Montreal at worst is 10th in the conference, and im just going to give 1 reason for that. Andrei Markov.
