Habber, even if you save some money with Juneau Perreault Dackell and Quintal leaving next year. You still have to get another player for their spots or more players for depth. Lang is only one body. Even rookie takes over a million these days... and any veteran worth signing makes atleast 1.5-2 million. If you bring in Lang the pay roll will stay at current level and most likely increase.

Habs arent contending team looking for high maitenance player for Cup run... they are rebuilding team needing support cast for the kids.

Mr. Nash13 above noted Gainey has been making moves trying to make save buying out Czerkawski McKay and Audette. Remember, buyout only saves about 30% of their contract, which makes it nickle and dime. Gee I wonder why we dont have those big names in Habs jersey?
