Is there a very real possibility that we end up with lots of cap room this year? I could see us with $4M + of cap space.

I see us signing Weber for $500K, Hamrlik for $3M maximum (hopefully less), Gorges for $2.75M and a backup for less than $1M.

That is about $8M remaining to sign White for $500K and a free agent forward, maybe two.

Other than Richards, I don't see anyone deserving more than $4M as a free agent. Seems like he is going to NY though.

If I were PG I would go hard after Jagr, give him 2.5 to 3M and then try to get Cole, Gagne, Leino or Fleishmann to fill in the other top 9 position.

But if we don't get two of those guys we could definitely see Montreal spending below the cap this season. Which if that is the case, I hope we get Subban and Price locked up long term a a decreased cap hit during the season.
