Carey Price recently opened up about if he would be willing to be traded from Montreal. His answer revealed how he feels about the team despite being injured.

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.

"On a day-to-day level, I feel really good, like I should still be playing. But then I'll go do something and my knee will swell up and that will be a very good reminder that it's not (going to happen)"




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.

"For sure, any way I can help now," said Price as per NHL.com when asked if he would waive his no-move clause. "I'm still a part of the team and if I can help in any way, I'm here."

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.

Never would have imagined that Carey Price's contract (LTIR) would factor in as a major contributor to the Habs future. Hughes also has 3 more years to actually trade his contract and bring back even more draft capital! The gift that keeps on giving! Go Kent Go
