Have had this CM Haf-932 case forever and I is so big now. Looking for a smaller and quieter case to replace it. Any help?

I have a Micro-Atx board (Asus z270G) with a large cooler (Noctua D-15), but kept the Haf-932.
I use only 1 GPU (RX580 8GB)
I still occasionnaly use my Blu-Ray drive, so a 5.25 drive opening is needed.
I still run 2 classic HDDs for long term storage
I run 1 NVMe SSD and 1 SATA SSD.

I do not need a super fancy side panel or anything like that. I liked the Fractal Design cases, but cannot make much sens of their line up...

Suggestions that are around the 100-150 CAD mark?

For fractal design, not really seeing anything wrong with what is on offer. Probably not going to have your full complement of mounts, but should be enough to get everything in there. You can always use double sided tape to stick a SATA SSD anywhere.

Here are a few that offer somewhat reasonable airflow possibilities, are micro-ATX, and have your listed drive bay requirements.

Also, I forgot to mention that I can only mount my GPU (RedDevil Golden Sample) on the lower PCIe x 16 slot on the Z270g, as the D-15 cooler partially blocks the first one.
