Carey Price, Canadiens Agree on 8-Year Contract Extension

Most of the money that will be paid out to Price will come as a signing bonus. In 62 games a year ago, the Anahim Lake, B.C., native posted a 37-20 record along with five overtime/shootout losses.

Such was Bergevin's choice, though there was no debate in the GM's mind which path he would choose. He was named a finalist for the the Vezina Trophy, an award given to the best goaltender in the National Hockey League, so Price got a well deserved extension and should be locked in as the Canadiens' goaltender for the foreseeable future. For a goalie who has a proven track record, 270 career wins, a.920 career save percentage, and 39 career shut outs, this is a great move.

On the worldwide stage, Price backstopped Canada to the gold medal at the 2007 world junior championship, the 2014 Games and the World Cup of Hockey last fall.

Last season, Redick averaged 15.0 points and drilled 42.9 percent of his threes on a career-high six long-range attempts per game. This marks the second Clippers starter lost in just a few days after the team traded point guard Chris Paul to the Rockets.

The one downside to this contract extension with Price is the amount of money the Canadiens will have tied up in a small amount of players.

Alzner was drafted No. 5 overall in 2007 by the Washington Capitals and spent his entire career with them, but the Alex Ovechkin-led team has failed to contend for a Stanley Cup. "We had good teams in Washington, but we couldn't quite get over that hump". The 38-year-old Thornton said he heard from more than half the league before taking San Jose's one-year, $8 million pact. "There's a saying we use: 'Goalies are not important until you don't have one.'". That group-consisting of Price, Lundqvist, Sergei Bobrovsky, Pekka Rinne, Rask and Braden Holtby-won each of the last six Vezinas, however, with zero Cups in that same span.

"Giving one player a big amount makes things a little more hard", Bergevin admitted Sunday after announcing the deal. "In an ideal world, we would have given him less, but that's just part of the negotiation process".
