There seem to be weird shenanigans involved with the Price thing.

I don't understand why they didn't simply deal with Seattle so they wouldn't take Allen.

Price is owed a lump-sum signing bonus of $11m in September, so Bergevin is probably thinking that Francis and the Kraken ownership aren't willing to gamble big on an aging goalie with a spotty regular-season record.

I guess we'll see. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

But you are not and Seattle has loads of cash to spend right now. They would like to be competitive and Price is a good start in net.
I don't think the $10 million matters. They didn't buy the franchise expecting a profit anytime soon.

Price is injured (could be going for hip surgery). Not worth the $ to have a banged up goalie. I get the marketing aspect (he played jr hockey in wash st and his wife is from nearby) but there are cheaper, better options.

Haha, turns out Price might need knee surgery.

Bergevin is triple-daring Seattle to pick a half-broken star goalie who'll be pushing 40 when his contract ends.
