BOMB of the day : Carey Price not selected by the Kraken

Published July 21, 2021 at 11:46

Many were worried that the Seattle Kraken would select Carey Price in the expansion draft, but according to information gathered by Frank Seravalli, Ron Francis' choice would instead be young defenseman Cale Fleury, who had six assists in 22 games last season for the Laval Rocket.

For the past 36 hours, it has been rumored that Carey Price could be on his way to Seattle. The owners have even given Ron Francis the green light to move onto number 31. Several journalists even stated that the chances of seeing Price move to Washington State were at least 50%.

We don't know if a deal was made under the covers between Marc Bergevin and Ron Francis, but everything leads us to believe that it is the case since the Kraken seemed to like the idea of making Carey Price the brand image of the franchise. Imagine how acclaimed and popular he would be within that community.

If this "news" comes true at 8:00 p.m., it will be a relief for Montreal Canadiens fans. Then, I will make my mea-culpa afterwards because my "feeling" was really that the Seattle Kraken would select Carey Price.

Can the Expansion Draft begin so that we can put an end to all these rumors and this brouhaha?
