Carey Price in Minnesota? The CH goalie himself made some very interesting revelations

True to his reputation, the famous number 31 was very generous with his time, in addition to delivering a unique interview with his two former teammates with the Tricolore. Obviously, this kind of content is a great moment for fans.
Among the topics discussed, Price started talking about his junior years and the NHL pre-draft process.
As reported by my colleague Vincent Fournier, there are two interesting things to note from this segment of the episode.
It's really interesting honestly. So Carey was extremely surprised when the Montreal Canadiens called his name to the podium with the fifth overall pick. It must be said that there were rumors at the time that the number one Montreal pick was Pouliot, who was selected just before.
Imagine for a second if Price had been drafted by Columbus or Minnesota, it would have literally changed everything. The last 15 years of the Montreal Canadiens would have been so completely different and the legacy that he left on the city and on this team would have never existed.
It must be said that it was a brilliant decision to draft Carey Price.
Of course, it's always fascinating to look at the different possible scenarios, with the hindsight of years, to see the impact of a decision on the destiny of a franchise. It's a safe bet that the Wild probably ended up bitterly regretting their selection of Pouliot very quickly, instead of Price.
