Kent Hughes: His past as an agent helps him handle the Carey Price file

This morning, former player Cam Janssen and journalist Andy Strickland released the new episode of their weekly podcast. Several themes were on the menu, but we must especially remember the passing of Kent Hughes.

It is interesting to see that the main interested party spoke for almost an hour with the two accomplices.

It’s a shame he didn’t do it on a Quebec podcast though. This can be explained by the proximity bond being different with a shwow American like that or because he himself said, on the podcast, that he felt more restricted in his answers in French.

However, there are some good English-language podcasts in Montreal, starting with Tony Marinaro’s Sick Podcast.

But anyway. I’m not here to complain that he took a podcast from somewhere else because in the end, knowing that the CEO chatted for an hour behind a microphone is a good thing.

So far, Hughes is relishing the challenge of being the Canadiens’ general manager. He changed his life and discovered aspects of the job that he didn’t know about…but he’s happy.

He is still in the honeymoon phase and also stated that extending Martin St-Louis’ contract was not a priority when he and Jeff Gorton were doing business. exploration in Europe in recent weeks, but that he will put himself on the case. It will happen.

And above all, he talked about Carey Price.

When asked how he will handle his goalie file, Hughes said his past as an agent would help him, as he will handle it a bit like he’s still an agent.

Carey Price has to make the right decision for him. –Kent Hughes

Obviously the CH will be affected by such a decision and the GM must have a deadline. Instead, he understands that the goalie has big questions to ask and that time is running out for him.

So you want to respect that as well, whenever possible.

You might think Carey Price wants to play (she came back last year when the playoffs were out of her league), but if she can’t (as you might think), there’s nothing she can do about it.

In a situation as unique and complex as Price’s, bringing in Jeff Gorton (CEO by training) and a former agent can shed new light on the situation.


– Notice to radio amateurs.

– It was more than good.

– Patrick Roy, coach of the year?

– When is the Oilers turn?

– It was bad for them.
