So you're telling me they were in 'cap hell' because they had to trade Dustin Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd? lol...Oh God, must be the first time in history a team has to move some players after winning a Cup lol
Give me a break...
The Chicago Blackhawks are still a very healthy franchise today...if they're going through salary cap hell, then I would hope the same for the Habs
You forgot to mention they also had to move that same summer: Ben Eager, Brent Sopel, Akim Aliu, Colin Fraser, Kris Versteeg, Bill Sweatt, Antti Niemi, and they had to deal with an offer sheet to Niklas Hjalmarsson because of their cap vulnerability. Not all great players, but cap pressure definitely resulted in a lot of transactions to get themselves under the cap for the following season.
