If you were surprised by the terms of Carey Price's new contract with the Canadiens, you shouldn't be. Even I, who optimistically forecast that he'd be signing a seven-year deal that would pay him more than 35 million dollars, wasn't taken aback by the news of his 6.5M AAV over the next six seasons. Some have posited this deal is based solely on Price's potential. To argue would be difficult....

Carey Price, Martin Brodeur Carry Big Risks with New Deals, But Canadiens and Devils Had Little Choice

Carey Price wasn't going to leave Montreal once the Canadiens filed for arbitration last month. Despite expressing a desire to test the free agent waters, it was hard to imagine Martin Brodeur playing anywhere else but New Jersey.
