Gainey has a big war chest for the off season.
The Habs still had money this year, about 3-4 mil.
Huet,Smokes,Breezer,Ryder and probable Dandy will be gone and that amounts to about 9 mil.
Then add to that the cap is going up by about 3 mil.
Thats 15-16 mil in the war chest and thats if no other player leaves.
Raises will cost 4 mil ( about) with A. Kostitsyn getting the bulk.

Gainey has the bucks and the Cap room to land 2 UFA's
Top of the list would be Hossa for sure but look at the numbers, their would still be enough to land a 2nd tier Center.
With the Habs now a proven top team and with their 100th year coming up I think Gainey will open the vault and go for it.
