Burke's managed to pick up talent by taking on salary. He got Aulie by taking Phaneuf, Franson by taking Lombardi. There's at least a possibility that the Habs could take on someone overpaid, especially a third or fourth liner, and in return upgrade a pick or a prospect.

To be frank though, this org has been neither creative nor focused on stockpiling picks. They have been aggressive and successful in the UFA market, but always in a pretty straightforward manner. The most likely use of the cap room is as rainy day/playoff upgrade flexibility, maybe never to be spent.
