#Habs Carey Price on if he’d be open to his contract being traded away: “whatever the team has to do – if they have to move money to make this team better, I’m here to help in any way I can.”

What a surprise, you might say, from a guy who doesn’t even live in the city anymore.
Even if Price wants to play, he’s trapped by his knee. When he goes to play softball, he needs several weeks to recover, which isn’t exactly a good sign for an NHL goalie.
In short: nobody’s been holding their breath for a while now, and the goalie knows it.
Unless Price retires (which he won’t), he’ll be on the LTIR and causing headaches for his bosses.
The other solution would be to trade the goalie’s contract. And this lunchtime, Price was asked about this very subject, since he does, in fact, have a no-movement clause.
And he said he’d do anything to help the club.
One senses that it would be painful for him to leave Montreal, as he is proud to have belonged to just one club in his career, but sometimes it takes what it takes. And since it would only be on paper…
He says he’s ready to do whatever it takes to help the Canadiens.
It’s worth noting that I don’t believe in a deal before the summer of 2025 – even if Kent Hughes has opened the door. After all, he earns $2 million a year in real money between now and the end of his contract, but has $5.5 million bonuses on July 1, 2024 and July 1, 2025.
After July 1, 2025, he’ll have only $2 million left to earn, and will have a $10.5 million impact on the payroll, which will have increased by then.
The Coyotes are likely to take him, aren’t they? A “comeback” with his good buddy Shea Weber would be special, wouldn’t it?
– Things are really bad.
Maybe it’s time for the Blue Jays to move on. https://t.co/mrMcypO0fA
