Montreal Canadiens Considering Carey Price Trade

General Manager Kent Hughes has left the door open to the possibility of trading Carey Price's contract, despite the complexities involved. While exploring all options to improve the team, Hughes emphasized that a transaction involving Price is
"certainly not impossible."

"I don't know what that would look like (as a trade), and I don't know if it will ever happen, but I certainly wouldn't describe it as impossible."

This move could resemble the Shea Weber trade, potentially benefiting teams looking to meet the NHL's salary floor. Price, 36, has three years left on his contract with a $10.5 million payroll impact but receives an actual annual salary of $2 million, along with approximately $6 million in signing bonuses.

The question now is whether Price will be traded by Hughes before his contract expires, sparking speculation among NHL fans.
