Obviously this talk is all hypothetical and we can imagine millions of different scenarios.
But the most likely scenario was always that you were right all along.
Not only is this bridge contract likely to cost more cap space in the long run,
habs lost the chance to defray some of that this year when we can easily
afford it. If we are a contender in two years , then we are more likely to be
pressed for cap space.
