Only other option is promote from within. Not look to FA.
Have to look from within. That's the cap situation. Unless they can find a cheap reclamation guy and get lucky, but that's a pretty random thing to hope for. There probably will be a fair number of guys tossed on the scrap heap, though, as lots of teams try to get down and/or can't afford to sign guys. So maybe it could work out. But you'd have to pencil in the roster using guys from within first.
But yeah, if Bourque re-establishes some value with a decent half-season now, maybe it makes him easier to move than Kaberle. Looks like Habs really will need to find a way to trim some, even beyond a Gomez buyout and guys like Armstrong or Bouillon moving on. Bourque is an obvious candidate. No rush, though. See what happens this year, if this year comes to pass. The picture could change.
