Those are the numbers at issue here. Regular season, playoffs and career to date. They look pretty good. Too good apparrently for the Canadiens in their cap situation.
I can accept that argument (I don't like it), but humour me here. What if those numbers belonged to a first round draft pick from 2005 named Carey Price?
Would the Canadiens have been able to get away with trading him for a package? (I think we can all admit, it would have been an even better one)
Or, would the Canadiens have been forced to find a way to fit in his millions?
Is it worth thinking about?.
