Even though he's on the long-term injured list all season and not on the team's payroll, Carey Price's contract is still a heavy one for the Habs.

Many fans and observers are wondering whether a situation similar to that of Shea Weber could arise, when his contract was traded to the Golden Knights for Evgeni Dadonov last summer.
The answer is quite simple: no. It's highly unlikely.
"A year later, the CH finds itself in a somewhat similar situation with Carey Price's contract (compared to Shea Weber). Yet this time, don't hold your breath: Kent Hughes won't be able to get rid of this one."

Those are the very direct words, but there's a very good reason for it.
Carey earns a 5.5 million bonus, disbursed on July 1 of each of his remaining contract years. For a GM looking to hit the salary floor, that gets very expensive.
I would add that Carey is still part of the organization, with a different role. We know he helps Samuel Montembeault a lot, but he'll also be a special advisor, a bit like Vincent Lecavalier.
Incidentally, the Price family is looking to buy a property in downtown Montreal.
