What might have been

With Jaroslav Halak returning to Montreal tonight, I thought I would offer up a preview image of an article that I was working on when all of Montreal was shocked with the Halak trade.

The article ended up taking a slightly different approach with the same basic premise. The title was changed from "Five reasons why the Canadiens shouldn't trade Carey Price" to "Five Good Reasons Carey Price is Still in Montreal". Some new imagery and some editing and all the research wasn't wasted.

I don't really know how close the Canadiens came to really trading Price, but I was happy at the time and remain happy with their decision today.

I am not sure when this debate will finally be put to rest. Eller's emergence has dulled the debate somewhat, but I have a feeling it isn't done just yet.

The Tampa Bay Lightning was used because it was at the height of the Vincent Lecavalier rumours and a rumour had come out that Gainey had offered Tomas Plekanec and Price but was turned down!!
