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.

The Habs always spend to the cap. Thus the Cap is a constant.

Gassing Gomer and paying him 10 mill is the total cost, not more.
