I guess my point is this: if a team is struggling financially, and is looking to reach the cap floor, the best way to do it is acquire players that will help them reach that floor, but will command a lower salary.

Basically: spending as little as possible, while playing within the rules.
I don't disagree with you, but next year might be a much better fit both for the Habs and a team looking to add cap hit.
