Bergevin always had to overpay to fix our grit problem. In my opinion this is perfect. We signed three players within the cap increase without even touching our roster. Our bottom two lines are made of:

Moen - Eller - Armstrong
Prust - Nokelainen - White

Now we have the Gomez money to play with knowing that there's no room for him in the lineup. So this doesn't reflect poorly on his numbers ability. We have two needs - a top 6 forward and a top 4 defenseman. If we look at Bourque and Kaberle's salaries which would come off the books if we traded them to make room to fill those two needs, we have a hell of a lot of cap space to make an impact in those two positions.

Either by trade or UFA.

The only question that I have is how are we going to deal with fitting Desharnais, Plekanec and Gionta on two lines. Either way we'll have a size issue on one of them.
