Include into the equation that

Now Huet is cheaper than Garon so we save money.
Quintal out saves us more cash.
Sundstrom at 2 mill will not be qualified (may or may not come back for less).
Juneau out.
Dowd possibly gone.
As well 5 Home playoff games increased our revenues.

There should still be the money to sign kovalev too.
I really dont think so. You cant count on playoffs revenues before you actually get there - players will have to be paid, even if we dont make it for some reason. Habs are saving about:

Perreault 2.8M
Juneau 2.0M
Dackell 1.4M
Sundström 1.3M
Quintal .5M
Traverse .7M
Garon-Huet
.... rough estimate 9M

If 3.5M goes for Bonk and 2M goes into keeping our RFAs and we propably need to add another forward body too (Laperriere?) meaning you can stop dreaming about Kovalev.
