If The Montreal Canadiens Had A Healthy Carey Price

from TSN,

Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes admits that having a healthy Carey Price would change the team's outlook moving forward.

Price's playing future is in doubt after the team placed him on long-term injured reserve this off-season due to ongoing knee issues. Hughes told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in The Athletic that having the six-time All-Star between the pipes would have shifted the ongoing retool of the team's roster.

“I think so,” Hughes said. “If we had a fully healthy Carey Price …”

“Those who have had that type of goalie, generally speaking, when they leave there’s a void, Obviously the Rangers are not one of those [going from Henrik Lundqvist to Igor Shesterkin].

“If we have that internally or if we were able to find that, it would be unbelievable, but certainly it’s the hardest position to find somebody you can rely on consistently from year to year — having one of them can have a huge impact.”
