Major Trade Involving Carey Price? Kent Hughes and Insider Pierre LeBrun Have Revealed the Shocking Possibility

In addition to the names of Montreal Canadiens players that often come up in trade rumors, such as Casey DeSmith, Josh Anderson, and Christian Dvorak, here's another one we can possibly add to the list.

What if Hughes traded Price's contract?



This is exactly the issue that the GM of the Montreal Canadiens has agreed to address, with great transparency, in an interview with the renowned Pierre LeBrun.

Here is his particularly intriguing statement:


"I don't know what that would look like (as a trade), and I don't know if it will ever happen, but I certainly wouldn't describe it as impossible."

- Kent Hughes

Interesting! Hughes thus opens the door to a possible trade of Carey Price, despite the complications.

He then adds that he must examine all options to improve the team, but he insists that a transaction involving Price is "certainly not impossible."

A matter to keep in mind, then!

It could obviously resemble the trade of Shea Weber, whom the Golden Knights acquired to put on their long-term injured list (before trading him again to Arizona).

Also, for a team trying to reach the NHL's salary floor, like the Chicago Blackhawks or the Arizona Coyotes, Price could be a solution for them.

Price, 36 years old, is under contract for another three seasons.

His spot on the payroll is $10.5 million, but he actually earns $2 million per season (in addition to about $6 million in signing bonuses).

Do you believe Price will be traded by Kent Hughes before the end of his contract? Would you do it?
