True. However, if the Habs spend to the cap-which they seem to always do-the full value of the Gomez cap hits (roughly $14.7 million) will ultimately be spent by the team in new salaries plus the $10 million which Gomez will be paid.
The total cost to the team of spending to the cap and paying Gomez his "off cap" salary will be in the $25 million range over the next two seasons. That's more than Ovechkin costs the Capitals or Stamkos costs the Lightning.
