Yes I did... and good for him for winning that million! I wish I was in his position, he got it on the last shot.

If they were not going to resign him beyond this summer, then the only logical move was to trade him. The 2nd round pick given up was probably the best Gainey could do, seeing the goaltending market is pretty dormant as we speak. If you go over all the teams in the NHL, you could identify maybe 2-3 (including Washington) that may perhaps ponder their goalie situation at the trade deadline. It was a good move.

Montreal is still a young team with limited playoff experience among the younger players. This trade will allow Price to get a nice feel for the playoffs and gain that valuable experience along with everyone else on the team. This is a long term move. What we lose today in Huet, is an investment in the future for Price.

Switching gears, Cornerguy is bang on with the fact that only a limited number of Canadians have discovered citydata... but give it time and eventually more people will post here. Word of mouth will have an effect.

City Data is great!
Id agree with you if it were early on in the season, but the Habs are about to enter the playoffs soon and with a young and inexperienced Carey Price in goal, it might have been a HUGE mistake by Gainey. We'll see what happens I guess. But that would be like the Hawks moving Khabibulin before the playoffs began and banking on Corey Crawford to goaltend. Id about have a heart attack! haha

He's hoping to bottle the magic of a couple other Habs goalies in the same position.

Ken Dryden and Patrick Roy. Both came in from nowhere to lead the Habs to the Cup in their rookie years. In fact Dryden was a Cup champion BEFORE his rookie season. He didn't play enough games in '71 to be ineligible for the Calder.

Hey, all, I love bullshooting about hockey as much as the next guy and likely more than most, but we need to keep in mind that we're in the Canada forum and not over in Sports.

Yea but... it's part of our culture

If this was in sports, it would have been buried after day one. At least it got some replies here and true Canadian perspective.

I was expecting the Habs and Leafs to run away with this, but its still decently close between several teams.
