Some massive news on Saturday night.
Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price has waived his no movement clause to be exposed during the Seattle Kraken's expansion draft.
This is absolutely massive news.
While NHL insider Pierre LeBrun reveals the thought behind it is so the Canadiens can protect Jake Allen and the Kraken would be too scared to take on Price's $10million cap hit, stranger things have happened.
Will the Kraken be able to pass on arguably the best goalie in the world regardless of price tag?
We'll have to wait and see!
Hearing that Carey Price has waived his no-move for purpose of exposure in the expansion draft so that the Habs could protect Jake Allen in the expansion draft. The thought is that Seattle wouldn’t want to pick up the rest of Price’s hefty contract. But I guess we will see.
