Francis Bouillon expected Carey Price to return to the game

The Canadian will probably no longer be able to count on Carey Price for the rest. We had suspected this for several months, but it’s clearer now after Kent Hughes’ comments last month.

Aside from the wage level (the CH took advantage of the wage subsidy to get their hands on a first pick with Sean Monahan) and for those who want to see the CH lose at all costs, hockey is not much news. After all, as we know, playing in front of Carey Price helps.

The Canadian will have to find the goalkeeper who will eventually replace what Carey Price managed to do in the city. It will not be an easy challenge for management, of course.

Recall that Kent Hughes claimed he does not have a No. 1 in his organization, apart from Price.

Even within the organization, there still seemed to be hope that Price could recover from his injury and get back into the game.

At least that was the case with Francis Bouillon, who this week said he was surprised by his CEO’s comments on Price.

I, I always believed that Carey would be back. –Francesco Bouillon

In his eyes, the fact that the goalkeeper had already suffered a knee injury (when the two men played together) proved that he was able to heal and return to the field, once again.

Having said that, of course, the severity of the current injury and the weight of the years mean that the situation in 2022 is different.

For Bouillon, this means that the rest of the organization must take matters into their own hands and find solutions to compensate for the loss of the main goalkeeper. This concerns in particular the development of young people.

And even if Bouillon is not in the goalkeepers department, he knows he will go through his pitch, which is youth development. Recall that he had closed the door to an assistant position to Martin St-Louis to remain in office.

Quebecer reiterated that they like what they see from young people and that the Canadian’s hopeful group has good elements to, one day, coach some players who will help CH.

Clearly, given the current management of CH, Bouillon’s role will be very important.
