There is no savings. Habs will always spend to close the cap. This isn't about the organization being "cheap", it about spreading the wealth suitably. Whatever goes to PK won't go to other players. PK can't win the cup by himself. Also the habs have the advantage to give one more year to PK that other teams can't. He'll get his long term contract, he just needs to wait a bit.
