In a recent column published on the The Athletic site, Pierre LeBrun confirmed major news regarding the Montreal Canadiens. Indeed, according to him, the general manager of the Habs is currently working on a transaction involving Carey Price's contract to free up money under the salary cap.

During his press conference last Monday on the sidelines of the Canadiens' golf tournament, Kent Hughes notably stated that he was open to concluding a trade involving number 31. Knowing full well that his career in the NHL is over, such a transaction would allow the Habs to have a huge amount of money available next summer to try to make a splash by acquiring a top-notch free agent.
Of course, such a trade could be complicated to pull off given Carey Price's lucrative contract, as he will receive nearly 17.5 million dollars in bonuses over the next three seasons. However, as reported by Pierre LeBrun, this is a case to watch over the coming weeks, adding that a transaction could be concluded more quickly than one might think.
The journalist has excellent sources in the hockey world and if he believes that Price's contract could potentially be traded, it's possibly because discussions between Kent Hughes and other NHL general managers have already begun. Although he will never wear the uniform of a new team, would you be disappointed to see Carey Price leave the organization?
In 15 seasons with the Canadiens, the veteran has claimed the top spot for the most wins in franchise history with 361 in 712 games. He also recorded impressive statistics, accumulating an average of 2.51 goals allowed and a 0.917 save percentage. Moreover, he also won the Hart Trophy, the Vezina Trophy, and the Ted Lindsay Trophy in the 2014-2015 season, establishing himself as the best goaltender in the NHL.
