that leaves Montreal 2.5mil short

Dandenault is 1.725 not likely to return and when he does it's Hamilton bound for rehab.

So they are now only 775 thousand short so they can pull off the Lecavalier deal.
$775K would be the salary of one of our Hamilton-eligable (ie. waiver-free) young guns, would it not? Or... wait, is Laroque on long-term IR? If so, wouldn't his salary be enough to cover that $775K + Higgins, Tanguay etc.
