What's more likely, Habs get 100pts, or miss playoffs?

SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $59,120,509; BONUSES: $400,000
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $5,179,491
They have four solid lines and a very solid top 4 defencemen, not to mention Price. I'd bet they get to 100pts before they fall out of a playoff spot.
But hey, what do I know?
Just to know, who are the top UFAs after this season that could be trade at the deadline as a rental ? So without giving up too much ? With that cap space, if we are in a playoff run, the Habs might be looking at trading for a good player to add some depth, because even if you think that forward corp is good, I'm not of the same opinion. Not enough consistency after Plekanec and Gionta.
On top of my head, there is Parise, Hemsky, Semin, Smyth and Umberger, but I doubt Habs would have enough to get them, especially for Parise.
