Wondering if people think Montreal should trade Cayden Primeau for more if a win-now asset? Perhaps as part of a package fir someone.
I ask this because Carey Price has 5 years left on his contract, which I think most people would agree is untraceable. Primeau will be 27 by then. That’s pretty old to become the next starting goalie. To me it does not make sense to pay Price $10.5M to be a backup any earlier than that.
So does it make sense to trade Primeau while he is still “up and coming” and probably has highest value rather than hanging on to him for 5 more years while Price plays out his contract?
If you draft The Next Goalie even next year (1st or 2nd round) that still gives that goalie multiple years to develop (while likely watching Price becoming painfully worse and worse unfortunately).
I am not sure what else the Habs can do with the Price contract. He has been phenomenal for them, but he is on the downside of his career
