for sure it's because of high salaries ..
montreal fans are the worst in the league when it come to overpayment of players ...
some habs fans feel that Koivu,Kovalev,Zednik,Rivet,etc... are overpaid but they are the same that complain when we don't go after chara(7.5m$),Kubina(5m$),Elias(6m$)...
Montreal is the only place in sports that you see people complaining that hockey player are overpaid but that wish we could go after the cup without spending money ..
IMO it's a wise decision by Gainey .. because the free agency will be good next year and the year after ... you just have to wait for the good occasion to spend your cap on 1 or 2 players ...
(Gaborik,Havlat,Gagné,Lecavalier,Crosby(not too far),Ovechkin,etc...) the more cap room we have and the more chance we have to get one of those YOUNG star !
If we speend 4.5 to arnott for 4 years we could miss the chance to go after gagné or havlat next year ..
also if Arnott bust .. we are stuck with him for 5 years...
