Johnson to third line centre, Kostitsyn to 3rd line RW. There's a reason we didn't call someone up when Downey got hurt, they wouldn't of played but would've counted against the cap. Let Bob Gainey make the GM decisions please.
Cap is not a problem if you call up someone you can send back if neccesary.
I find it hard to believe trying to save few hundred thousand dollars in cap room (difference between Downey and Lapierre/Ferland/Kostitsyn/whomever) being worth the risking our, lineup depleted. If were losing that Bouillon long term as rumoured Canadiens have over 2.5M space left.
