$5.5M + $5.5M + $5.5M + $5.5M + $5.5M = $27.5M

So you have a difference of about $2M total over the length of the 5 years and yet, you save the dollars when the cap will be at its tightest, next season.

Am I missing something here?
it's the cap hit...that's the issue here

Some people are convinced that because he will be at a cap hit of 7.5M or 8M instead of 5.5M

That the Habs are doomed and won't be able to sign some hypothetical player or players.
