If its 7 million he wants, I'm not opposed to a trade.

Either way if this team wants to win a cup in the next 10 years there best chance is with Price the kid is a stud and would fetch a kings ransom in a trade he is held in high regard around the league, unless your talking to Milbury.
i'm as big a believer in Price as you'll find, but if the cost to keep him is going to be 10yrs/70M$, I would seriously consider moving him assuming, as you suggest, that his value league-wide is significant enough to get us a serious windfall in return (would have to be considerably more than we got for Halak, and conceivably it would be).

but man oh man does it really highlight how absolutely vulnerable we are in nets...

kind of makes you wonder why Gauthier didn't get the price signing done before moving the only potential goaltending asset we had in the organization (Ramo).

Realistically I think he gets 25 mill for 5 years. With the new CBA though, I think the players want to lock a big money long term contract.

They didn't mentioned who was the source but even appeared somehow doubting this to be true.

You want 10 years? Fine, cap hit per year drops from $7 million to $5.5 million.

It sucks because the Habs need him and he knows it.

That would be an atrocious contract. Even if Price was the best goalie in the league, that's entering Dipietro territory.

Wow. No goalie in this league is worth that. He won't get that anywhere. Better hold out.

He's a 7 million dollar player. This is not a surprise.

10 years at 7 million per though? No way. I'm a big believer in him but that's crazy. 5 or 6 years at 7 million is fine. But not ten years.

He's RFA. Zero leverage. Sure we'd be buying into his UFA years, but 2 of those are RFA years. So either bring the cap hit down to 5.5-6 or just sign a deal of 5mil for 3 years and sign that fat contract when he's pending UFA. To be honest, Price isn't at Rinne's level yet.

New York needs Lundqvist, Buffalo needs Miller, New Jersey has always needed Brodeur, Nashville needs Rinne, Philly "NEEDED" Brizgalov... If the NHL team is looking to be serious about getting the cup, and if you're a real #1 goaltender... there are not many replacement options out there.

Same here for the Habs and Price, except we know Price can play at a top 10-top5 level even with the pressure of Montreal, we are not sure his replacement could do it. Pay the price, we have to keep him.

That is absolutely horrifying to offer any goalie 7 millions per year.The goalie market isn't that high.Have fu nsomewhere else Price , we don't even have the team to contend anyway , we'll pick up another great goalie along the way like we've always done with authority.

Anyone here know how negotiations work? He wants 7 million, doesn't mean he'll get it.

It's a lot of money, but anyone thinking his agent will settle for 5 million per season is kidding themselves.

If it's a 10 year deal, I can see the first 7 years being 7 million, and the final 3 years being 6 or 5 mill.

I'm assuming that's what we'll see the deal come down to.

And this is all assuming the rumors are true, of course.

If he wants a 10 year contract. I would offer 10 year at 65m. It would be a little give from both sides.
