With a contract worth 10.5 million until 2026, Carey Price should normally be fairly easy to trade, given that some teams struggle to reach the salary floor. The Coyotes, for example, regularly take on this type of contract.

The big drawback is that Price's salary is mainly paid in annual bonuses, which makes trading him much more complicated. What's more, Price has spent his career in Montreal and is the team's all-time winningest goaltender, among others. Trading him, even though he would never play for his new team, could be perceived as a lack of respect.
Nevertheless, Kent Hughes is truly willing to do anything to improve the team, and if that means trading Carey's contract, he'll do it. That's what he told Pierre-LeBrun.
"I think there's always a possibility of doing something. I don't know what such a trade would look like and I don't ultimately know if it will happen, but I certainly wouldn't describe such a scenario as something impossible." - Kent Hughes

That's quite a surprising statement from Kent Hughes. We know that the human side is very important to him.
Price could then sign a one-day contract with the CH to retire as a member of the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge. He could also see his jersey in the heights of the Bell Centre. After all, he's pretty much at the top of the list of potential players for such an honor.
