We have about $20M with 15 signed so if Markov and Gorges sign for a combined $9M ( rounding up a $.5M or so ) leaves us at 17 signed and $11M. Back-up goalie, Weber, White, Pyatt, Pouliot ( or replacement) for about $5M in total leaves $6M or so, cant see more than $7M available for a big signing. Probably the Habs dont go more than $5M-$5.5 or so to leave a little wiggle room as we always do. So enough for 1 big contract. Do we try to sign Wiz and send Spacek to the minors (counts against the cap), or do we go for the big forward who plays a physical game like Laich ?
