If MB doesn't do anything with that extra cap this was an unnecessary move.
Cap is going down, I wouldn't say we necessarily have 'extra cap'. We would've had 8 mil next summer to do the following:
Re-sign DD. 2.5-3.5 mil I guess?
Re-sign White .8-1 mil
Sign bottom 6 player or use young guy .9 mil to 1.5
Sign depth D or use young guy(weber) .9 mil to 1.5
Sign backup G 1-1.5 mil
Even a little tight, this is 13Fwds, 7D and 2G.
Habs now have 12.7 mil, much more to work with. In addition a kaberle buyout may give us additional space if necessary for a splash.
