I figure Kaberle is worth 3 mill at this point. If he was making 3 mill playing on a decent team's third pairing and 2nd PP I think it would be a pretty good deal.
I imagine there are teams out there who'd take all of Gionta's salary. He's small but useful when playing with the right kind of players. He'd look good with the Penguins next to Malkin IMO.
I don't think Montreal really needs to worry about this...
1. They're looking like tankers right now and the top 4 guys in the next draft are looking pretty juicy
2. They've got 6M+ cap space right now
3. They've got deep pockets and Kaberle and Gomez will probably get bought out at the end of the season.
I can understand if some Habs fans are frustrated with the current line-up, but when the team stalled they already had a decent number of up and coming core players... so it's not like they're going to suffer like Edmonton did.
Tank this year and go BPA and Montreal will surely have enough young spark to attract the right kind of free agents and at the same time Montreal will have tons of cap space to get the pick of the litter.
