    If you’re looking at future value and potential value, I’d have to say Primeau is more valuable than Knight is.

    Primeau has proven so much already that there are far less variables in his potential than Knight who hasn’t accomplished what Primeau has.

    So if nights a 15-20 pick, I’d say Primeau gets better than that though there’s little chance we trade him anyways. What GM would draft Knight over Primeau at this point?

    I like Primeau a lot as a prospect but Price has another 7 years on his deal...


    Ideally a goalie prospect would get drafted in 2022 to be ready when Price contract is done.

    He could get injured or his level of play could decline. We also need a backup which Lindgren is barely good enough at

    How many goalies are ready before age 24-25 in the NHL!!?? Beside top prospects lilke Price or Hart most goalies will need to spend 4-5 years in the minors before beig ready for the big stage so if Primeau follows a normal curve of development he wont be ready untill the final 2 years of Price contract, so the timing would be pretty much perfect.

    Having an excellent goalie in the AHL is also underrated. It has a dominoe effect on the org if he can get laval back to their winning ways, and build playoff experience for the young core they have there.

    “I got in and I was able to see the games (Laval Rocket). So it's fun of being there and to finally see what's this level is liking. This experience and the facilities (Place Bell) it's been unbelievable here...”

    “I've to go back and finish. I wanna end up in a good note. I got some exams to do still.. Just tryna take everything I can here.”

    “Not in a negative way. I mean I don't say it. I wanna prove everyone wrong. I'm just tryna prove Montreal right. They had faith in me, take me as one of their pick (2017 Draft).”

    When Theodore was in his prime I was shocked they drafted Price in 05...

    I would have preferred he stay in college at least one extra year to push back his age of waiver eligibility...

    Theodore wasn't under contrat for 7 years and he wasn't know as the best goalie in the league too. (2 good season under his belt)

    Theodore had a pretty big contract for the time, not sure for how long but I want to say 6 mil per season and he was a top 10 goalie. The point is in 2005 he was only 29 and clearly the #1 goalie for a few years and it was surprising that they drafted a goalie in the first round with him just hitting his prime.
    When Primeau was drafted had Price already signed that extension? I can’t remember

    Theodore signed a 3 years 16M extension in 2005. (the year we drafted Price)

    Price signed an 8 years contract one year after Primeau was drafted. (signed in 2017 - contract started in 2018)

    6 years difference between those 2 situations. (9 vs 3)

    I would chew slowly on this prospect. Let him develop in the AHL for a few.

    “Sticking with me for the rest of my life from this year was how resilient we were and how everyone really counted us out after losing some top players last year. The success we had to prove those people wrong... You know back to back Beanpot champs and Hockey East Championship. Then NCAA tournament bid.Even be nominated among that group was something special. So just being to have those experiences...”

    “It’s all of the best players coming together and competing for their country... So a lot is on the line. The play is elevated just that much more. It’s just exciting to be able to play at that level. I’m excited for the next couple weeks.”

    “Being able to learn from Thatcher (Demko) and Cory (Schneider) is something special. I want to use that as motivation going into the summer. Getting ready for next year... They’re at the level I want to get to. So I just want to figure out how they prepare. Take all of that in and do the little things that make them get to that level.”

    “I’m fortunate because not everyone has an opportunity to be around hockey in that sense. I’ve grown up knowing great hockey players. So it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary... But it was great to meet Richter and it's a really huge and humbling honor.”

    “It’s crazy and something special... I’m just excited to be able to represent the U.S. again. It’s not every day that you get to be around this kind of level. So I’m just going to try to soak it in as much as I can. Every time you represent the USA it’s an honor... It never gets old.”

    On the one hand, it would have been nice to have Primeau stay another year in college, so he becomes waiver eligible one year later. On the other hand, they either thought he couldn't learn much more in college or thought they might lose him if they didn't get him right away.

    If we are negotiating a trade and they want Primeau bad and will give us grade A prospect value for him, I would move him. However, when Price is 36/37, Primeau will be 24/25 so the time line fits a bit. Primeau can be the back-up for Price in the last 2 or 3 years. But if Primeau rises and performs to expectations earlier than later, that makes it a interesting situation for us.

    It would be interesting to see what happens in the next two years between Price and Primeau before the expansion draft. Lets say Price continues to have up and down years and Primeau is lights out and plays 20 NHL games in 20/21. Not saying I like or dislike it but imagine if Price is exposed in the expansion draft? Seattle would seriously consider taking him. Doubt this happens but lets see if Price gets past his up and down injury seasons after a good season he has been on for 4 seasons now.

    Play GM and Agent game. Primeau tells his agent he wants to turn pro and they talk financial strategy moving forward. Their best move is to do exactly what they did and tell Bergevin they want to turn pro and sign before the season ends. What does a GM do? Tell them we will wait till after the season? Risky move to do with NCAA assets.

    I think the D is going to be much better in Laval next season too.

    Like I habitually say, let the timing do the talking...

    For a while, we've been asking for a #1 goalie. There's one in our pipeline. That's not gonna be easy transition on snapping his fingers. But it'll take the time it needed. To be well adapted there. To be the same goalie he was in the NCAA.

    Primeau wants to be challenged on his challenges list. Thought and saw that it's the right time to be moving to the next step.

    This negotiation between the Primeau Clan and the CH Clan was totally a surprise for me... They did it pretty well. Like in both ends.
