Price Reveals That He Would Be Willing to Waive His NTC To Help Out the Canadiens
Carey Price has been a Montreal Canadien since he was drafted fifth overall in 2005. Despite an amazing career with the team, sadly, Price has been open about how he won't play another game in the NHL. His knee injury, despite feeling okay on a day-to-day basis, will keep him from wearing the Habs jersey again.
Price still has 3 years (including this one) left on his contract with the Canadiens, making $10.5 million. He recently opened up about whether or not he would be willing to be traded from Montreal.
While this seems insignificant, it would mean that Price was not a lifelong Canadien, and he would end his career with a team other than Montreal, at least on paper.
Kent Hughes Will Now Have to Try And Dump Price's Contract
Now that he has the okay from Price, Kent Hughes will have the difficult task of trying to dump his contract. Doing so could give the Canadiens the room they need to make the jump to the next level of Stanley Cup contention.
