This one will hurt, especially since Montreal was deriving a lot of its cap efficiency from the contracts of Gorges and Markov. Even if Gauthier makes another move, he's not likely to get such a cap-efficient contract, and Gorges on LITR doesn't save a whole lot of cap.

It won't take many more D-men injuries for the unit to seriously start listing at this rate. Already with Hamrlik out the Habs are playing 4 bottom-pairing D-men.

We may be looking at another season lost to critical injuries. We're not there yet but we're certainly trending that way.
