It all depends on what Gorges gets mind you. Habs have about $6-6.5 million to spend and leave a bit of a cushion under the cap.

I wouldn't say no to Pyatt back at the league minimum either.
The qualifying offer route would not have permitted it, but Pyatt could be taken back now on a two-way contract. Perhaps he needs another stint in Hamilton to re-kindle his offensive touch. The kid did score 43 goals one year in Junior in the OHL, a good league, and was also almost PPG his last time in Hamilton. He could be a good injury reserve player due to being responsible and if by chance his offence improves, all the better. If instead he stays in Hamilton, he is an excellent role model for the kids there.

All this assumes that another NHL team won't give him a one-way offer. But someone might, he really is not bad.
