Let's assume that the Habs will buyout Kaberle...this is what Bergevin got:

************************************************** *******************

My Custom Lineup

Max Pacioretty ($4.500m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Brian Gionta ($5.000m)
Rene Bourque ($3.333m) / Alex Galchenyuk ($3.225m) / Brendan Gallagher ($0.870m)
Brandon Prust ($2.500m) / Lars Eller ($1.325m) /
Travis Moen ($1.850m) /

Andrei Markov ($5.750m) / P.K. Subban ($2.875m)
Josh Gorges ($3.900m) / Raphael Diaz ($1.225m)
Alexei Emelin ($2.000m) /

Carey Price ($6.500m)

Buyout: Tomas Kaberle ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $47,368,333; BONUSES: $2,485,000
CAP SPACE (15-man roster): $19,416,667

************************************************** ******************

With 19 millions left to play with.

And in a year which we might see a lot of good players available and with the cap going down. Players might be available below market value.

And some good players might be boughtout just to fit under the new cap.

In a year which we might have: Perry, Getzlaf, Iginla, Ribeiro, Morrow, Semin, Bouchard, Horton, Clowe, Gagne, Ryder, Penner, Weiss, Filpulla, Clarkson, Dupuis, Brunner, Roy, McDonald,...and many more available...

Money might be a good thing to have right now.

************************************************** ******************

With Plekanec - Glachenyuk - Eller as centre...Mtl got offensive and defensive talents, size, specials units are cover and MTL have 3 good center for less than 10 millions.

DD's performance should get him a 3M to 4M contract (in my opinion...can't ask more than that with the new cap and the players available)

But then you might ask....How much Clowe will get if available?
Will Clowe help this line-up more than DD would?

Putting another 3 to 4 millions dollars at the center when you already have Plekanec and Galchenyuk is slowly taking his place is.....bad bussiness.

Especially when their is some weakness on the wings and defense.
That 3-4 millions could help to get a big shutdown-D or a winger with scoring abilities.

I would put that money somewhere else!!
Absolutely. I agree 100%
