I'll bet you anything you want that any contract signed before a new CBA would be grandfathered in under the current rules, or at the very least, an out would be offered to the teams and players in those positions. I'd be shocked if they retroactively decided to screw those teams over after the fact.

Example: Jagr's contract was grandfathered in despite being 0.5M above the player cap at the time.

The habs management is not perfect, they do make mistakes sometimes. The explanation you just came up with just reeks of apologistic blind faith. You're like a mother whose child can do no wrong.
