NHL rumors were floating around that the Montreal Canadiens could look at trading Carey Price as there is interest but his no-trade clause and salary cap hit could make it very difficult. The Habs may now look at testing the market on a Jake Allen trade.
Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic reports with Sam Montembault and Cayden Primeau in the minors and looking for a role in the NHL, if the Habs were to shop Allen, they could fetch a first-round pick.
Jeff Gorton will have some decisions to make as we get close to the NHL trade deadline. Does he trade one of Allen or Price?
Allen has another year left on his contract with a cap hit of $2.875 million and does not own a no-trade clause.
