#Habs Carey Price
on if he'd be open to his contract being traded away: "everyone knows hockey is a business- money management & cap space is part of that; I'm going to a MTL Canadien for the rest of my life & I'm very proud of that so I'm willing to help this team in any aspect
Price is willing to do whatever to help the Canadiens as always. This could include his contract being moved to give Montreal more flexibility.
Montreal Looking To Make A Playoff Push
With the recent influx of young talent the Montreal Canadiens have set themselves up to succeed again soon. Their young core will be in for a big test this season as they look to get the team back into playoff contention.
Without Price the Canadiens will go with Samuel Montembeault
and either Casey DeSmith
or Jake Allen
in the net. Montembeault will likely be the starter heading into the season.
One thing is for sure the Canadiens have some big skate to officially fill with Price gone. They could use Price and his contract to acquire a successor or add to other parts of the roster.
WILL CAREY PRICE'S CONTRACT BE TRADED?
