Carey Price would have revealed a major information to Bergevin about the next step in his career

Carey Price was always a crowd favorite in Montreal and he was also a favorite of Marc Bergevin. The former general manager never shied away from saying that he loved Carey like his own son and that he would never try to trade him, no matter what.

The relationship between the two men was very deep, so much so that Carey would have mentioned to Bergevin, a few years ago during a golf tournament, that he only had three seasons left to play in the NHL.

At least that's what Norman Flynn says, who was on BPM Sports.




Also according to Flynn, his controversial trade proposals on Suzuki or Caufield were made in the context of Marc Bergevin wanting to win at all costs with Carey in front of the net.

If Marc Bergevin knew Price's career was coming to an end, why wouldn't he have tried to trade his top prospects to increase his chances of winning the trophy?

Nevertheless, the former Tricolore GM did nothing of the sort and we thank him. After all, he left a nice legacy to Kent Hughes with high level prospects, which he himself did not have the luxury of when he replaced Pierre Gauthier.
