I wouldn't say either of those are set in stone but yes that's the NHL's current position.

I think I overheard on one of the pods, that they were thinking it'll be a 60 game condensed schedule.

Habs extend Jake Allen for another 2 years at $2.875 M...added to Price's $10.5M that's nearly $15M for next season and more than $13M for the following to just for their goaltending. That seems like...um..a LOT  :o

Price is too much by himself, so Allen at 2.8 isn't bad lol.

Especially considering, before this past season, Allen had been . . . well, bad for a number of years. Most of his career, he's been a below average goalie. Was that because he couldn't handle the workload as a starter? Sure, maybe, but I'd want to see that before I signed up for more years with him on the roster.

Yeah, it's an interesting approach. I don't think ideally you pay that much for a backup unless it's a platoon situation or you're at least giving the guy 30% of the games; and if that's the case, you're paying Price way too much.

I'm guessing Bergevin is concerned about Price staying healthy, and wants to have a guy that conceivably keep the team in it over potentially long stretches - whether Allen's career is trending towards Schnieder or Halak, we'll have to see.
