In the event Gainey can claim Kaberle and claims him, I think that the Habs may be cap-barred from bringing any other defensemen, even if Kaberle gets injured.

I'm not a CBA expert, but I think that's the foreseeable thing. Hopefully I'm wrong.
Well, for one, Komi missed more than 15 games, as will Higgins and Dandenault, will give the Habs cap salary exemption for the games they missed. That should amount close to 1-2 mil. And Kaberle's cap hit is almost down to half of what it was, around 1,2/1,3 mil. The Habs already had 1 mil in space, so I don't think it would be a risk cap-wise.
