I think with the departure of Jokinen, the Panther main powerplay scorer who also played the point, and Charron, who coached the power-play last season, the productivity of the Cat's PP Unit is a big worry.
Without any known top quality offensive talent, the PP is in trouble from the start.

But for Montador...the team's currently well under $50M, let alone the cap level. If they resign JBo at $6M, they still have $4M left. That would have been enough to get Monty wrapped up, and Martin said he was talking to his agent I believe a couple weeks ago.

So unless Cohen's tightening the purse again...
