Price vs Fucale Future Predicament

So in 4 or so years we could be facing a future issue IF Fucale reaches his potential. If Fucale in 4 or 5 years has shown he can play well in the NHL and price can bring in a good return what would you do? Obviously this is just hypothetical, but if Fucale looked like he can be a good starter and Price could bring in a good top 2 dman or top line centre I consider it. What would you do? Trade Fucale? Trade Price? This is In no way a Price hating thread, I'm thrilled with how he is playing this season.

Fucale has a long, long, LONG road ahead before the Habs management even have to begin considering making a move in the goalie department.

The chances he becomes anything close to Price are slim. If he does, then who cares. More assets to trade.

Why people think Fucale has starting goalie potential?

Because he was ranked In the first round and was the highest ranked goalie. Aswell as many scouts believe he can be a starter and Button went as far as saying he could be a franchise goalie.

Fucale will have big shoes to fill if we trade Price at some point or let him go when his contract expires.. Price is IMO the best goaltender in the world right now and proved he could handle the Montreal crazy market and all the pressure coming with.. If Fucale develops as expected, it will just give Bergevin some very good options but its still 4-5 season away, alot can happen till then..

Fucale seems to have a good head on his shoulder and with a good goalie situation in Montreal we will be able to develop him properly, if he ever reaches the top of his potential we might end up with one of the best duo in the league and if needs be trade one of them..

Lets just develop Fucale slowly and things will unfold naturally imo

It is very difficult to predict how a goalie will develop. By setting your expectations so high for an 18 years old, you will very often end up disappointed.

If he turns out well, then awesome. Chances are not so good.

So basically the Nucks situation with Lu and Schneider. Hopefully management can handle it a little better.

I heard that montreal has been getting calls on Fucale with Edmonton showing the most interest.

Well it will be much different since Price won't be allowed to be on a 12 year cap circumventing contract.

They should drafted him when they have the chance.

Bah, all of LA, ANH, OTT and even WSH i would say have had 3 possible "starting" goalies. We have one. i would say the problem relies in not having goalie depth, then the future extremely unlikely "complications"...

And if Price is still on top of his game in 4 years (which he will), well then we have ourselves a young "valuable" goalie to trade that was picked in 2nd round. i;ll do the halak trade any day.

Worst case scenario we have a nice trading chip.

Are we already going to start worrying about this?
Soooo much can happen between now and 4-5 years from now.

Fucale will be traded in that time span.

Unless Fucale proves to be just as good, if not better than Price, then Price will be dealt as Fucale will be younger and cheaper.

Because he's a goaltender and chances is he won't be a starter like the majority of goalies drafted?

Not worrying at all. I just thought it was an interesting scenario.

If the Habs management happens to stay there for a few years, and they end up dealing with this two-starter situation, I think they'll have learned a thing or two from the Price/Halak situation.

To get Fucale's value up he needs to play but you don't want to take ice-time away from your starter. Healthy competition is usually pretty good too though, so it all comes up to a balance you need to achieve. It will also depend where we are in 4 years, because if the Habs think that they'll be able to do a cup run during Price's career (while he's between the ages of 28-35) then they'll likely hold on to him. If they think it's a longshot then there's a bigger chance they go for the big move.

Teams that are playing well don't typically do the big (or risky) moves, and the Habs are a historically conservative team on the trade market. I don't expect anything huge to come from this potential two-goalie situation.

Fucale has another year in the QMJHL.
Then he will have 2 years to develop in the AHL.
He'll back up Price for a year or two.

Price will still be young for a goalie about 31-32 when Fucale is ready to be a starter. That's when you identify which goalie you want to go with and who you want to trade.

So the problem holds no weight for a very long time.

Fuscale still has a lot of prove before this is even close to a predicament.

Many, many goalies do not pan out. Even highly ranked goalies. He has a lot of potential but that doesn't mean squat, just look at the dozens of "high potential" goalies that the Leafs have struck out on. A lot of people said Pogge would be good. And that Raycroft would be good. And the Monster.

Do you know how many "top" Q goalies go on to have starting positions in the NHL ? i don't actually know, but i can easily assume there are very very few that have starting jobs in the NHL.

Like, almost non-existent.
