Looks ike they want him and his salary gone. I think we'll see a few more of these. Cheaper then a buyout if Seattle takes him. If they don't, then they still can buy him out by July 27th if that's the way they want to go.

Man, that's a gamble I'd think long and hard about if I'm Seattle.

This is also pretty funny in that it sort of re-enforces what everyone knew about the Habs this year. They weren't "built for the playoffs" and Price isn't some wizard who just magically gets better when the chips are down. They went on a lucky run which doesn't change that everyone, Montreal included, knows that Price's deal is not a very good one long term.

With all the financial and cap ramifications, I think it’s a pretty strong bet Seattle passes on him.

I hope Seattle takes him just for the chaos of it all, but I'm guessing they see how bad that contract is and stick with their original plan of a platoon with Driedger+someone else.

I’d take Price in a heartbeat if I were Seattle.

I mean, why would they protect an impending UFA?

I literally thought the same thing. Why would Seattle take Landeskog if he had no intention of signing there? On the flipside they could conceivably take a different player from the Avs and snag Landeskog as a free agent anyway.

Ok Unless Seattle said they want Dermott or Kerfoot and plan to take them already. Why trade for McCann and potentially lose assets
