    Was hoping it would be more like 8x9.5. Potentially killer contract, but hopefully he can prove us wrong.

    Sad but true.
    Talk about overpaying a goalie who has yet to do anything worthy in the playoffs...

    Put Price in a bubble suit right now!!!! So they can't overpay for offence now, they have to bite the bullet and put Galchenyuk back at center full now, defensive deficiencies be damned.

    1 million extra is nothing. He was always getting nine

    We can hope that Vegas will be a smash hit and add a bunch of revenues to the league and the cap will go through the roof and $10.5m will be chump change in a couple years.

    A stronger Canadian dollar will increase league revenues. That is what we need to buffer having the highest paid goalie the the league.

    Quebec should be around sometime soon as well.

    But holy cow. I knew the best goalie in the world title he's been dragging around would pay big, didn't think that big.

    That would actually be the ideal scenario, but it's never going to happen.

    Price is going to make sure this team remains mediocre enough to be on the cusp of making the playoffs for the next decade, nothing more.

    It would be one thing if this organization was loaded with prospects that could give cheap labor on their ELCs, but alas, with the worst prospect pool in hockey, that doesn't seem likely...
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    My new poorly written out thoughts on this season's Montreal Canadiens.

    No way he was getting less than Subban so nine was the baseline. He also knew what we were like last season when he was hurt. He had Sisyphus by the balls.

    Sucks he can't recruit someone who can score goals so he doesn't have to get a shutout to win games like 80% of the time.

    Except Bergevin didn't say that though. The reporter asked if Price was a recruiting tool...Bergevin answered "I don't know if he helps, but he doesn't hurt"

    Why is this a surprise?

    Price had this organization by the balls in every way. There's no hot prospect coming up, there's no young offensive talent on a cheap contract on the team, the core is old, and they saw what happened when Price went down with an injury for long periods of time.

    They had no choice but to pay him.

    This is not me being 20/20 hindsight: I wanted him traded a full season ago. But here we are...-

    I agree, just saying we now depend on it going up. If it doesn't will be tough to spend on offense. Perhaps increasing interest rates will bring it up, who knows.
