Trade Rumor: Briere for Carey Price

ESPN Insider, ah thank you...

After saluting the sarcastic fans of the Molson Center in the finale of a four-game playoff sweep at the hands of the rival Boston Bruins, is the curtain about to fall on Carey Price's career in Montreal?

The Philadelphia Flyers are dangling Daniel Briere to the Montreal Canadiens with the hope of landing young netminder, according to the Camden Courier-Post.

The rumored trade would also include a prospect (James Van Riemsdyk? Luca Sbisa?) on the Flyers' side and would bring the negotiating rights to unrestricted free agent D Mike Komisarek. Philadelphia previously used a similar style trade to bring in Kimmo Timonen and Scottie Upshall from Nashville. Philly then inked Timmonen before he reached free agency on July 1.

The inclusion of Briere would require him to waive his no-trade clause, prompting speculation that Joffrey Lupul may replace Briere in the deal. Either way it would solve the Flyers' hole in goal ... and spring Price from the pressure cooker that is the Montreal crease.

Whadda say? Briere or Lups (I'd rather trade Danny) for Price straight up is a no-brainer, IMO, but adding Sbisa or Riemer to sign Komisarek? Not sure how I feel.

I like both our prospects. We need defensemen, but I liked what I saw from Sbisa. Though we have great forwards, VR could be even better.
