Carey Price Receives New Eight-Year Deal With The Canadiens

Habs pushing hard for Alzner

Marc Bergevin is no dummy.

Price has spent the last 10 years with Montreal, so it appears they'll lock him up for what could be the rest of his career.

"It's a challenge, but every GM has different challenges", Bergevin said.

"Nobody has a goaltender like Carey Price in the league", Bergevin told reporters on Sunday. "I just thought it'd be too weird, I guess". He was again a Vezina finalist this year, ranking fifth with 37 victories, sixth with a 2.23 GAA and tied for seventh with a.923 save percentage.




On the worldwide stage, Price backstopped Canada to the gold medal at the 2007 world junior championship, the 2014 Games and the World Cup of Hockey last fall. In those three pressure-filled tournaments, Price posted a 16-0 record, five shutouts and allowed only 17 goals in 16 appearances. He has played in fewer than 10 National Hockey League games the past three seasons with Carolina and the St. Louis Blues, who drafted him No. 32 overall in 2011.

Markov and Radulov are two of the most attractive unrestricted free agents who remain available, two players who would provide offense to any team that signed them. "We had good teams in Washington, but we couldn't quite get over that hump". He's now the Caps' second highest-paid player behind only Alex Ovechkin. Montreal scored 11 goals in a six-game loss to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "There's a saying we use: 'Goalies are not important until you don't have one.'". He finished third in the Vezina Trophy voting, behind Sergei Bobrovsky and Braden Holtby.

"There's no negotiation", Bergevin said.

Sam Gagner settled for a $650,000, one-year deal last year, a month after free agency opened, with the Columbus Blue Jackets and had a career-high 50 points. "But that's part of my job to manage that".
