Up to the cap I don't know, but I guess the Habs salaries could increase a bit.

Before the lockout, the habs were not making money at 40 millions. The big difference since then is the increase of the $can.

There's also the negative impact of the revenu sharing... I'm not sure exactly what will be impact of those factors on next year's salarie for the habs, but I expect them to be somewhat prudent, as long term deals could come back to haunt them is the $can drops back.

We can't really know what will happen in 2-3 years on that regard...
