Not sure if this has been mentioned, but aside from cap numbers Habs are suddenly in a much better position to attract UFAs. Our hot season has made us into a much more attractive location for a player looking for a contender. An O6 team that's young and on the upswing? Eyebrows are finally going up. We've been overpaying our UFAs for years; maybe this is the year we have an actual shot at a top-tier player.

Perry would be my first choice. Cap would be tight next year, but at the end of 2014 we lose the big contracts of Gionta and Markov. Even with a re-signed PK we'd probably be okay moving forward. This might be the year when we could pursue and catch a star.
