Not so sure about that. We'll likely let go quite a few of the expiring contracts.

We can reasonably expect the Habs to no tender an offer to:

30. Masse, Dany (gone for sure IMO)
31. Mitera, Mark (gone for sure IMO)
35. Slaney, Robert (gone for sure IMO)
36. Engqvist, Andreas (gone for sure IMO based on the lack of NHL opportunity/icetime despite AHL success)
37. Bishop, Hunter (gone for sure IMO)
38. Nash, Brendon (No really sure, that injury was really bad for his career. No doubt would have gotten NHL time this year. Might be too low on depth chart now)
39. Geoffrion, Blake (gone for sure IMO based on how he's been a healthy scratch)
43. Nokelainen, Petteri (gone for sure IMO)

Kinda proves the point...

Cole is a good signing right now but the term he was given will be and still is an issue. His ability to play well relies on his speed, will it still be there 2-3 years from now?

Diaz was a nice find, glad he listened to our scouting staff there.
