It is not my reasoning that Montreal cannot keep both goalies. I'm sure they can if that's the priority. I'm just saying it is mighty optimistic thinking they can do so for 4 million or there about, and when it gets beyond that, which I am certain it will, it makes it that much harder to keep the rest of the RFA's.

With Fish on Sand's quote in mind, the most likely scenario is that one of the goalies is traded, but then whoever comes back is likely rather good and has a salary that needs paying also. Still - most likely this is the better scenario for Montreal... just have to hope for the Habs that they choose the right one to trade.
