With FAs not wanting to come to Montreal this will impact the Habs. If Zhogi scores 35 goals can the Habs afford him at 5 million????? He is playing where he wants after declared FA.
Whenever a decision is made by someone else you cant be smart about the decision as it is made by someone else. Many of the spending decisions will be made by arbitrators using a small number of comparables either ratcheting up costs for certain players or creating free agency by the team walking away.
