Will Carey Price be out of the World Cup of Hockey

There are already Montreal media members that have written off Carey Price for the World Cup of Hockey, the theory being that he should just focus on his health for the Montreal Canadiens ahead of next season, but Team Canada general manager Doug Armstrong still plans to name the injured goaltender as part of the first 16 players announced on March 2. Now, no question Armstrong will confer with Habs GM Marc Bergevin, who happens to be part of the Team Canada management staff, as well as Price himself, before naming him.

GMs Acknowledge Bergevin’s ‘Sense Of Desperation’

If this season is going to go up in smoke, as it appears it might based on the last couple of games they played or didn’t play against the Columbus Blue Jackets, then put yourself in that position for a draft pick. I know the fan base isn’t going to want to hear that, but Bergevin has already declared he’s not firing his coach. If he can’t find a suitable trade, or he doesn’t want to give up the assets just for the sake of making a trade, maybe the silver lining is you continue to drop and all of the sudden you slide into a top 10 spot or higher at the draft.”

Trade Talk: Habs moving for Drouin?

Is Therrien on the hot seat?

Canadiens “are aggressively pursuing Drouin.”

Semin handed chance to shine for Canadiens

There weren’t many teams in the NHL falling over themselves to sign Alexander Semin on the back of a disappointing few years, and the Montreal Canadiens were able to pick up the Russian veteran on a one-year deal worth $1.1 million. This time next year, the Canadiens will be looking back at either an amazing piece of business or a relatively inexpensive mistake, but Semin does arrive in Montreal with an impressive C.V. in the league. Semin was available for a budget price after the Carolina Hurricanes bought him out of the final three years of his $7 million-a-year contract with the franchise, ending a three-year spell with the team that has failed to live up to the hype that surrounded his move from Washington in 2012.
