    What's bigger? The gap between Tatar and Pacioretty or the gap between Rinne and Price? Then look at this deal and VGKs and compare the costs to acquire.

    Was reading this thread during my lunch had some good lol's.

    @TooLegitToQuit ...Price was my favourite goaltender for a long long time but with that said, I wouldnt trade garret sparks for price at 10.5 mil or 9.5mil lol. Thats literally almost 1/8th of your teams cap. Sure Price was great and still is good but that contract=lol for many different negative factors surrounding price.

    One positive for your argument is:I think starting goalies are the most important position in hockey bar none. Anyone who's played a high level of hockey will agree. With that said this isn't the olden days with no salary cap so every penny counts either postively or negatively in regards to a players value. To be worth 1/8th of the salary cap you must be mcdavid crosby level tier or at the very least in the kucherov stammer matthews ball park.

    In strictly regards to this offer I dont see why the preds would do this. A different team could be interested in Price at a different ask.

    He literally just won the Vezina trophy. That's why we're calling him the Vezina winner. We're not giving up Rinne, Tolvanen and multiple top picks so we can take on an injured Price with a dog crap contract.

    Lets just say this bolded false statement becomes true in a hypothetical scenario. It's not like hes a young healthy guy coming off a career year so why would someone ATM risk acquiring him? Especially for the OP ask?
    Not talking about the Previous younger stud Price on a good contract who i actually was a huge fan of even though im a leafs diehard. Im talking about Price as of Today 17/09/2018 at 10.5mil until hes 39 or around that age.

    What do you thin WEBER is worth as of today just curious?

    So, would Montreal give that up for Rinne?

    Most of this is pure speculation... the exception being HF's opinion of Price. Let me restate. A .900 SV% goalie is not the best in the world nor is it a top 5 goalie. You might think so, but that is just your opinion... as is any perception you might have about what people in "the hockey industry" think. People say all sorts of random crap on the air to cater to their audience... what they actually think is another matter. One I doubt they share with you.

    No team is their right mind is going to offer an oft injured goalie a 10 million dollar contract after a .900 season. None.

    Why do you keep bringing Patch into this thread (you know, the one you started about trading Price for Rinne and a boatload)?

    OP posted this on the Habs board and he's getting roasted there too. At what point does it sink in that maybe he's wrong and everyone else just might be correct...

    This proposal is insane but the craziest part about this is how hard OP is doubling down on it...

    When will you understand that this has nothing to do with Price vs Rinne, and everything to do with Nashville having zero incentive to pay that kind of price to address a non-need? They are content with giving Saros his shot, and it won't cost them a top-10 prospect and two 1st's going that route....oh, and it won't eat up a crap-load of cap either, which will help them keep their core together.

    This deal literally makes no sense. Go outside and get some air.

    Preds more than happy to roll with Juuse Saros after Rinne retires than pay 9 million for Price.

    I went through your rambling all the way up to this point and just had to log in to comment. It's crystal clear you have no clue what type of a person Rinne is. Rinne could easily sign for $2M if he feels that he wants to stay in Nashville.

    I'd love to see the Preds do this but Poile isn't Bergevin.

    Prices contract is atrocious. Nothing more disgusting than a big goalie contract.

    Interesting concept. Rinne has short term value because he won a Vesina. Price can be considered best in the world but at 10.5 million till he's 40, oy. Here's the other problem. Saros is the #1 of the future and the Preds might have lucked out on finding a Rinne clone in Westerholm. (Early but when Preds scouts are quoted as saying 'Holy ****! He plays like Rinne.' it get's your attention. For the amount the Preds are giving up, the Habs really need to eat more than a million. More like 50%. Asking for the Preds #1 prospect is too much. It reads WAY too much like a Habs fan trying to get a treasure trove for an overpaid asset.

    It's a hell no with WAY WAY too much going the Habs way.

    Rinne basically admitted after the last playoffs that it might be time to start giving Saros the starter job. He's made his money. Nashville has a goalie plan and it doesn't involve giving up a ridiculous amount of assets.
