I say Halak. Realistically this poll would be better suited after the playoffs. As of right now though Halak seems to be their #1. They will get some good return on Price though. More return on Price and Halak seems to be the better goalie right now. I say return purely because they could still resign both and then trade Price away.

Clearly I'm missing something. Why do they have to choose? Is this just hypothetical?

Scotty Bowman said to keep Price... so that's my vote.

Or was Bowman playing mind games again?

Or does he want us to think he is playing mind games???

:huh:

Both are going to be RFA's and both of there contracts will be going up. Halak will want a lot more. The responsible thing for a GM to do would be to let one go. It's becoming more and more apparent that Price may not be suited for Montreal. Halak seems to be doing great.

Get rid of Price and get the picks that come with losing an RFA. Halak your number 1 and Desjardine as the back up.

Edit: Price was Gainey's Golden boy. I don't know why but I could see Price in the Western Confrence soon. St. Louis?

Not denying he won't be good but I'm not giving up that many picks when most of our stars are 30+ years old.

I will agree with ya that there's still alot of upside for Price - however I'm comfortable with Howard in net...Now if Howard wasn't panning out, or if Osgood were to continue his current streak of shoddy play - then I'd be welcoming Price with open arms.

As of now if I were a Habs fan I'd much rather see Halak in net.

Price could end up as another Fleury. They both have talent but were ruined by mismanagement.

Halak is very good now. There's no guarantee Price will ever reach his potential.

I'm glad I'm not the one making this decision.

Montreal is just a joke right now. They have no identity at ALL! C'mon Plekanec, Halak, Markov, Gionta, Gomez, Kostytsin,....... Should they not try to keep a canadian boy who could de worth a cent?

I m of course aware that our leaders come not really from michigan too, but i just feel it is really really something wrong with Montreal. For us it s not really something new as we had already the russian five for example.

What do you think? do you have the same feeling as me?

Well guys like Koivu were allowed to walk via UFA this past summer...Alot of new faces on the Habs roster this year.

Well they can't just go after french Canadians and hope things work out. Gainey is gone so things may turn around because Price does't get as many starts now that he isn't play as well.

Latendresse couldn't do s*** in Montreal. They got rid of him and it worked out for both teams. Same could happen with Price.

Of course but they ve brought Gomez or Gionta who are americans as their leaders. Also Camalleri i agree.

But don t you feel there is something wrong with their lineup? I would rather see them keeping Price

Well at least for the marketing it would be a good think, cuz for the competition i guess they couldn t do much worse. Montreal is the typical team out in the 1st round of the playoffs. I can t see them getting better with the players they have.

+having an identified core which fits with your identity could only help them. For example this year, what was the point to recruit these tiny players? I don t get it...

I'd keep Halak. He's consistently been the better goalie this season. And from the sounds of it, he's a better teammate as well.

Who knows if Price will ever reach his draft-day potential? Besides, Price would probably fetch more on the trade/offer sheet market.

Kenny get price over here!!!

Mindfly doesn't have a perfect team to spare him the anguish of losing! Waaah! Waaaah! And then if Price did badly here, he'd cry more! Waaah!

There's a couple of things they'd need to evaluate if they're going to choose between the two.

First, how much they trust their talent evaluation. Second, if they'll be a contender any time soon (unlikely).

If their scouts are right, Price will end up being better than Halak. Or at least that's my impression. He's pegged as the goalie of the future. If they won't be contending soon, keep Price and have better goaltending in a few years when the team might be better. If they'll be challenging soon in their eyes, keep Halak, because he gives them the best chance now.
