would Bergevin ever sacrifice Cayden Primeau? He’s one of the truly elite goaltending prospects on the planet right now but, with Carey Price under contract another six years, will Primeau ever get the starter’s net? Tossing him into the pot for Hall would make the Habs a serious player for his services, and they have the cap space to make a strong pitch for a long-term deal as well. Another bonus: Montreal has twelve-draft picks on the board for 2020. That’s what you call a surplus.
By the way, if Primeau is called up now that Keith Kinkaid has been waived, the Devils could have a chance to scout Primeau in NHL action when he backs up Price. Just sayin’.
