Carey Price Reveals How He Feels About Potentially Being Traded From Montreal

Carey Price, a career-long Candien, has just revealed how he feels about potentially being traded away from Montreal, and whether he would let it happen.

Price Reveals Whether Or Not he Would Waive His NTC To Help The Canadiens

Carey Price has been very open about the fact that he will never play another game in the NHL. His knee injury, despite feeling okay some days, continues to swell whenever he does anything on it. The unfortunate state of his injury will keep him from ever suiting up in the NHL.

"On a day-to-day level, I feel really good, like I should still be playing. But then I'll go do something and my knee will swell up and that will be a very good reminder that it's not (going to happen)"

Unfortunately for the Canadiens, Price is still under contract for another 2 seasons after this one. While he is on LTIR, his $10.5 million AAV is still a constraint for the team's hopes to take things to the next level. Price has a NTC, which makes it even more difficult to trade him, and he recently opened up about whether or not he would waive it.

"For sure, any way I can help now," said Price as per NHL.com when asked if he would waive his no-move clause. "I'm still a part of the team and if I can help in any way, I'm here."

It's clear that Price has a special place in his heart for the Canadiens, and is willing to end his career with another team, at least on paper, to help the Canadiens succeed.

Kent Hughes Will Now Have to Try to Dump Price's Contract

Kent Hughes will now have the difficult task of moving Price's contract before it expires. Doing so will open up some cap space for the club, which could help with acquisitions that they need to fill the remaining gaps in the roster.

Never would have imagined that Carey Price's contract (LTIR) would factor in as a major contributor to the Habs future. Hughes also has 3 more years to actually trade his contract and bring back even more draft capital! The gift that keeps on giving! Go Kent Go
