i would love to know the terms of the deal when all the dust has settled Did PG cave a bit when maybe his backup solution of neimmi was acquired today?
Regardless, im glad to see everything has worked itself out, Goes to show everyone not to listen to rumors and all the ******** which follows it.
Wow This place amazes me
People actually think that there was a possibility that Price wasn't going to be the Habs goalie and that Anti Niemi was an actual possibility??
Man...people come up with these crazy ideas in their heads and actually think that's what's happening behind the scenes
Carey Price was always the ONLY option as #1 goalie for the Habs...
I was hoping for a longer 5+ year contract but 2 years is good too. He will be 2 years away from UFA when this contract is up, so we will continue to hold most of the leverage in negotiations... unless he goes Conn Smythe on us on the way to cup 25... but if he does that, i think will be able to handle giving him a bit extra.
YES! Finally! Let's just hope it's something around what he got last year.
EDIT: 2,6M per. A bit over what I expected, but nothing out of this world. Him being signed for 2 years is actually great, and means next summer is going to be that much more important in building a contender. We'll have TONS of flexibility, especially with Price still under 3M per.
