Carey Price is a good goalie but he is not worth that, maybe 5mill/4 years but to lock up a player for that money for that long with the crazy injuries that happen in todays NHL the franchise would be set back 20 years. It is better to build a team around solid D and forward group. Look at Detroit and their success with Osgood and Howard. Lets not do this. I like Price but come on, this so called source has to be fake.

The rumor is that the habs already offered him 7 m per year for 7 years and he wanted 10 years instead of 7.

Goalies are unpredictable, see:

Dipietro
Bryzgalov
Luongo

I have to call bs
I like him. He's a good goalie. He's not a god. He has had an ok season. He has not been stellar. Why 10 years. Has the league not learned from Dipietro???

This is getting stupid.aybe he watched the top 50 players according to tsn a few too many times. If he had stolen 5-6 games by now then I might go 6 million for 6 years.
If he insists, trade him. He's not playing tonight and our goal tending looks alright. He's no where near the top goalies in any statistic this season.

Bingo. Habs traded Halak and have no future in goal, he and his agent know that. Good for him

habs should have signed Price and PK before trading for Kaberle

There is leverage even with being a RFA as he can say he won't sign long term.

If he gets 10 yrs, the cap hit would be lower than 7M ala Luongo etc where they make almost nothing in the last 2-3 yrs...

Why not? You can never have too many awful contracts.

I'm really fine with a 10 year deal, but the cap hit better be much lower like 5.5

I love Price and think he is very important for the Habs. But at 7M for any length, is way too much.

If that's what it takes I would see about dealing him for our coveted #1 centre.

Use Ufa's as a stop gap until we can groom another goalie from the draft.

Seems that goalies are the one thing we can draft well.

If he really wants that much I'd let another team give it to him and take the four 1st rounders.

I really don't like the fact that we actually offered him $7M per season. He's not close to worth that.

Is this confirmed by anything besides them mentioning it on RDS? until its on something more respectable in print I don't think this deal was offered.

Price after this season is RFA for 1 more year, then he's UFA.

This essentially is the time you lock him up... Because if it's left to next year, it'll be quite tense.

If there was anyone on the team I'd say to lock up for 10 years, it's Price. I wouldnt want to see him go anywhere else.

Maybe, we could stagger it, to make the cap hit less? It'd help out his chances on having a successful team, and it's not like it's not likely he gets endorsements... Espescialy with better play.

I agree with the poster above who mentioned the Superstar players like longetivity on their contracts.
& as for what Price has proven... IMO I think the decision has to factor in everything. Watching him play nightly makes me realize this kid is a special talent.
Is he worth it? I guess that's debateable... But no one else I have seen on this team would be more deserving of it.

Complacency would be my only concern...
