If you are rebuilding and are going to struggle to make the playoffs, I'd rather sit tight and not throw money at hired guns only to take on more overbloated contracts. In 2 years the Habs will have Gomez, Kabs, Gio and Markov off the books which is currently 4 of our 6 biggest contracts/cap space. I'd rather see us build through the draft, and add hard working character players in the meantime to set a good example for the incoming rookies/prospects over the next few years.

I think management is sending a message, when they have a bottom 6 that could be made up of Moen, White, Prust, Armstrong, it's clear the Habs want to add hard working character guys. If they are going to miss the playoffs again, better to have guys like them then soft lazy players like Semin, etc.... that just tie up cap space down the road and aren't players you want to build your team around.
Holy cow!

Could not have written it better!

Still can't believe we have Prust!! (maybe it has something to do with his french-Quebecoise girlfriend!!, love...can do wonders! it can even make someone move to highly-taxed/pot-hole-filled Montreal!! but we love Montreal even though 80% of construction contracts are owned by the ******* *****!!).
