General Manager Kent Hughes has cracked open the door to the idea of trading Carey Price's contract, fully aware of the intricacies involved. In his quest to fortify the team, Hughes stressed that a transaction involving Price is
"certainly not off the table."

"I can't map out the exact contours of such a trade, and it might never come to fruition, but I wouldn't rule it out as an impossibility."

This potential maneuver could mirror the Shea Weber trade, offering assistance to teams striving to reach the NHL's salary floor.



Price, at 36 years old, still boasts three years on his contract, with a $10.5 million annual salary cap hit, but an actual annual salary of $2 million, combined with approximately $6 million in signing bonuses.

The lingering question revolves around whether Hughes will indeed execute a trade involving Price's contract before it expires, fueling NHL circles with rampant speculation.
