Following that though, yes...the Habs will have to pay him. But so what? He will have earned it, and there will be more then enough money (especially with the cap rising at that point, not to mention other contracts coming off the books) to cover his raise

every year there's money coming off the books and money being put on the books...that's the easy part of running a team.

Finding the right players to make it all fit...now that's the real challenge
People eat blood sausage. People are idiots.

What you say makes sense, the key is to find these special players and retain them, and build on that while you have the player on your team. Is Chara's salary being discussed? Doubt it. Has his salary been an impediment to a cup? Nope.

The ones who think a player should get a good screw job would probably also like player salaries to be secret.
