Carey Price is not sure if he will have a contract extension worked out for July 1.
Price said Tuesday that it's possible that there won't be a new deal in place at that time, but he is confident that something will get done. He has one more season left on his contract and then he is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent. However, it would be shocking if the Canadiens didn't get him locked up to a long-term pact.

Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens will reportedly meet next week to discuss a contract extension.

Price has one year remaining on his current deal at $6.5 million. The Canadiens goalie posted a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage during the regular season. Whenever the two sides agree on an extension, expect the cap number to be higher than his current salary.

Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazette argued that the Montreal Canadiens should trade Carey Price.

At the center of his argument is the fact that Montreal hasn't found postseason success in recent years while being centered around Price and major changes may be needed to get Montreal on the path to an eventual Stanley Cup championship. He also argued that Price has never stolen a playoff series, that the NHL is no longer about building around an elite goaltender, and that Price will be 30 in August, so he might see a decline in the latter half of his next contract. Those are fair points, but while Montreal hasn't come close to winning the Cup recently, Price is still one of the best goaltenders in the league. He's someone you can build a championship team around, even if Montreal hasn't been able to yet. That being said, you do have to wonder about his next contract as he will likely want something more lucrative than the seven-year, $59.5 million deal Henrik Lundqvist signed back in 2013. He's worth it now, but that deal might not look as good as Price exits his prime.

Carey Price would like to sign an extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

"I want to stay here," Price said. "I know we'll figure out a way to make all the pieces fit and bring a championship here." Price is entering the final season of his six-year, $39 million contract, so he can sign an extension this summer. Locking him up will be critical for Montreal as the start netminder is the center of the team after winning the Vezina Trophy in 2015 and being a finalist again this season. The question is how big Price's cap hit will be. Henrik Lundqvist currently has the biggest cap hit of any goaltender at $8.5 million annually and Price can likely command more than that if he chooses to.

The Montreal Canadiens can sign Carey Price to an extension this summer.

Price has one season left on his six-year, $39 million contract. He'll likely get a significant raise after winning the Vezina Trophy in 2015 and being a finalist for the award again this season. After Montreal's first round exit at the hands of the New York Rangers there might be some significant changes this summer, but re-signing Price will still likely be a key item on Montreal's agenda. Price did all he could to keep the Canadiens alive in the first round as he posted a 1.86 GAA and .933 save percentage in six playoff starts.
