If Habs miss the Playoffs Carey Price will leave Montreal

According to Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazette, Montreal Canadiens' netminder Carey Price would demand a trade if the Montreal Canadiens miss the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season.

Carey Price has always made it clear that he wants to win a Stanley Cup at least once in his career.
I've got a lot of years left, but in reality it's not that many years when you think about it, Price stated at the annual charity golf tournament at Laval-sur-le-Lac Golf course this past Monday. A lot of guys you see go through their whole career and don't get an opportunity (to win the Stanley Cup). I don't want to be one of those guys. I want to get there."
Simple Price wants a Cup, but he says it like he doesn't care with which team he wins, he just wants to win the hard-earned championship.

Journalists proceeded to ask Montreal GM Marc Bergevin about the comments and Bergevin proceed to answer like any GM would.
I think Carey has more good years in front of him than he thinks, Bergevin stated. I'm sure he'll laugh at that, but look at players like Rask and Chara, who are in their thirties and are fighting for the Stanley Cup. No. For me, he's a goalie who takes care of himself, who's focused and so I have no worries about that. 
No, Carey goes hunting and I don't hunt, so I couldn't, Bergevin told the media when asked if he discussed the issue with Price in recent months.
If Montreal misses the playoffs this season, it'll be the fourth time in five years that they haven't contended, and at 32, Price's career could be over in as little as five years. And if they miss the playoffs, Price may ask to be traded to a real contending team.
