Agreed. This is as if Alfie got traded 3 weeks after he took the sens to the finals.
From that playoff run, only Halak, Cammalleri, and Suban shoudl have been untouchables. Pleks kinda disappeared after the 1st round.
Anyways, I'd take this opportunity and laugh at the habs fans. They were all pretty high on their horses during the playoffs.
"we got our next patrick roy!"
I guess this is why we're not in the NHL as GMs because I would have been very pleased with Halak and I 100% would have traded Price, then signed Halak to a $4 million X 6 years.
I also would be overjoyed with Cammalleri, Suban, Gionta, but less than enthused about Gomez and Plekanec. I would have made sure to acquire what I thought would be a good 2nd line center on a SHORT contract for Price - which I guess Lars Eller is, but again, I would have made tweaks to the roster that kicked arse in the playoffs, not trade my number one goalie just because the other nerd is younger or whatever.
