Price's delayed return damages Canadiens' Cup hopes

Thursday, 01.21.2016 / 7:30 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

The window for the Montreal Canadiens to end the longest Stanley Cup drought in franchise history is closing more and more by the day, yet the team is currently in a holding pattern.

General manager Marc Bergevin announced Thursday that goaltender Carey Price would not be ready to return for at least another 3-4 weeks from a lower-body injury that has kept him out since Nov. 25. The news essentially guaranteed that Bergevin will not be pushing all his chips to the middle of the table to go for the Stanley Cup this season.

Price's return would come far too close to the NHL Trade Deadline on Feb. 29 for Bergevin to know if his most important player, one he called the best player in the world, will be on top of his game and, more important, durable enough to withstand the rigors of an extended run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price could be out for another 3-4 weeks recovering from a lower-body injury, general manager Marc Bergevin said Thursday.

Bergevin said Price's recovery was going slower than expected but he did not have any setbacks in his rehabilitation.

Price has been out since Nov. 25. If he misses three more weeks, he could return Feb. 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. If its four weeks, it could be Feb. 19 at home against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"It's been slower than we expected," Bergevin said. "Injuries … everybody's body is different, heal quicker, slower. His position is very demanding for his injury. So it has gone slower. ... We don't have a time frame. We hope to have him back. But he's not here. We have to move forward without Carey."

Lightning say there's no timetable for Drouin trade

Thursday, 01.21.2016 / 12:49 PM / News

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said Thursday he's "actively and aggressively" attempting to pursue a trade for suspended forward Jonathan Drouin but he won't be pressured to adhere to Drouin's trade demand.

Yzerman said he has yet to find a taker for Drouin, 20, and there is no timetable for a trade.

"This is obviously not the position we had envisioned," Yzerman said. "Going back to the start of the year, going back to last year and the draft and what not. But for various reasons here we are and we'll deal with it."

The Lightning suspended Drouin indefinitely without pay Wednesday for failing to report to an American Hockey League game between the Syracuse Crunch and Toronto Marlies.
