I'm not trying to be defensive but the Habs do have very deep pockets. I could care less if ownership paid twice the cap and we had two NHL teams, one here and one in Hamilton. They can eat all the mistakes they like as long as they can be competitive at the NHL level.
But if you're talking cap then there are always ways to cut spending or trade bad contracts. That's neither here nor there and the Habs are actually in a pretty good spot so I don't think it's a cause for concern.
