I think Bob Gainey should use the same strategy but in reverse that players use for negotiations with habs to drive their contracts up and end up signing elsewhere just like how Briere did.

So, knowing that no top UFA player will sign here, Bob should be agressive and offer them long term - top money contracts in order to push other teams towards the cap and put them in a trouble situation. This is a strategy that will allow him to make trades a la Lang and get high paid players for less of what they're really worth!
