Leafs Sink Canadiens Season: Goodbye Price, Hello Lecavalier

Tyler NasmithContributor IFebruary 8, 2009

Just as this economic crisis is an opportunity for new ideas to flourish,  the Canadiens devastating 5-2 home loss to the arch-rival Maple Leafs on Saturday night is an opportunity for Montreal GM Bob Gainey to do the once unthinkable.

Carey Price must go if for no other reason than to ensure the opportunity for future greatness.

Halak has proven this season to have the talent and psyche to be a starting goalie in the NHL.

And Lecavalier wants to play in his hometown, I have heard and said enough times here on the streets of Montreal to accept it as fact. 

Mr. Gainey, now is the time for the extraordinary. 

Where can I comment?
