When Marc Bergevin repeatedly pushed back his scheduled July 1st press conference, everyone suspected something was in the works.
That notion was confirmed yesterday when Carey Price was signed to a six-year, 39$ million deal. According to CapGeek, this means that Montreal has roughly 62$ million committed to 22 players.
As for Price's deal, this seems to fall well within the current market for goaltenders. His 6.5$ million cap hit falls somewhere between Pekka Rinne, Jonathan Quick, Ryan Miller and Henrik Lundqvist.
Overall, are you satisfied with this deal?
