The Carey Price issue is currently the talk of the fans. Whether it's about his possible retirement, the removal of his jersey, or even the installation of a statue of him in front of the Bell Centre, there are many debates that have fans talking about the number 31.

On BPM Sports, Tony Marinaro made a new statement that sparks a debate regarding Carey.

Marinaro says he disagrees with Brendan Gallagher's comments that Carey Price's number should be retired by the Montreal Canadiens.

"To me, there's absolutely no question when you talk about the impact he had, you talk about the success he had. When you came to the games, people came to see Carey Price play. It's not something that's usual. People want to see goals, people want to see excitement, but he was sparkling and exciting and at the same time calm and collected.


He did everything he could to deserve it (to have his number retired in the heights of the Bell Centre). Obviously, it would have been nice to have won a Stanley Cup and then there would be no discussion. He got us there. It's hard to say, but it would be fair to say he would have gotten us there another time if he hadn't gotten hurt (in the 2014 conference finals, Chris Kreider's famous year). He's just done so much throughout his career. I think when you look at the names and the jerseys up there, I understand all the cuts- people came specifically to see these players. Pricey was the guy people came to see."

See Marinaro's clear response:


I don't buy it, the jersey of Carey Price should not be retired -Tony Marinaro

Basically, he considers it an honor beyond all that, beyond the tickets sold. (Retiring a jersey)

Tony adds that he has never been to the arena to watch just the goalie.

For his part, Jean-Charles Lajoie would not retire Price's jersey because there are too many, but he is not totally against the idea.

And in your opinion, should Carey Price's number be retired by the Montreal Canadiens? It's still the talk of the town.
