Carey Price to debut against Montreal on Thursday By Mark Stefenelli (Rangers) On Tuesday 2nd November 2021 / 5:04pm
Carey Price has been traded to the New York Rangers!
It was a one for one trade with the Flyers for Sergei Bobrovsky earlier this week. The Bobfather has already started a game for the Flyers since this transaction was completed.
Things move fast in the HSHL!
As a reporter for the Rangers, it's my duty to try to provide impartial updates and stick to the facts. So here are the facts.
Career Stats for these two:
Price 74 gp 34 wins .925 sv% 2.08 gaa
Bobrovsky 30 gp 10 wins .865 sv% 4.08 gaa
Clearly Price is the superior goaltender in this limited number of games played. So far this season Bobrovsky has the better play, but the Flyers are struggling early on and Price may just be slumping.
So far as contracts go, both guys make more than $10 million per year, with Bobrovsky a mere few hundred grand above Price. Carey has a 4 year term to Bob's single season contract though.
You decide which is better? Is a 4 year commitment to Price a good idea? The jury is out on who got the better end of this.
What does the long term look like for Carey Price? Will Bobrovsky change Philly's fortunes? I'm hopeful for good things in the future.
Price has been penciled in to start Thursday night against the Montreal Canadiens. That's going to be a hell of a test for the newest Ranger. The Habs are a monster this season!
In other news, the organization signed a few players and the following will report to Hartford as soon as tomorrow morning.
Stay tuned and we'll talk about the NY Ranger offense in our next segment.
