Unless Halak crumbles in the Western Conference, it’s an affordable contract for a good goaltender. It’ll be interesting to see how much the Canadiens really end up saving by signing Price.

That’s what I thought… makes Montreal look even crazier.

That is an amazing deal. With the amount of money the Habs are currently paying roughly 3.2 for their current tandem.  They could have easily signed Halak, and tried to have used Price to help alleviate some of their problem contracts. I doubt we see the Has making the same run anytime soon.
