All true, but you have to wonder what the habs will/can/could do with that cap space.

I personally wonder if there will even be enough good players that are worth signing or trading for to get us to the cap.

I don't think the habs should handcuff themselves to long term UFA deals just because they have the money to spend to the cap. I think the habs should be looking for top notch players, but if none are available, you don't do what Gainey did in 09. And I'm very afraid that there's only 2 options : stay pat and not spend to the cap OR repeat of 09 with signing average players to insane deals.
