Last-minute surprise development concerning Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens
BY DAVID ST-JEAN AUGUST 15, 2023 (7:20 PM)
It concerns goaltender Carey Price.
To the surprise of many, Hughes revealed that the team plans to start the season with Carey Price in the official lineup, instead of immediately placing him on the summer-long LTIR (Long-Term Injured Reserve).
What does this mean and what changes?
By keeping Price on the team's official lineup to begin the season, Hughes provides himself with the option to place his star goaltender on the long-term injured reserve "during the season" (rather than on the offseason LTIR).
This will give him much greater flexibility, compared to if Price had been placed on the long-term injured reserve during the offseason. This approach is more advantageous due to the rules being more favorable.
If Hughes effectively accomplishes this, it will open up a world of possibilities for him to make trades next year.
