I'm not sure if this has been posted, if so erase.
But yeah basically if our habs can go deep in the playoffs/make the playoffs. That there's a chance he'll return. I found that pretty interesting. Definitly a silver lining if the stars align, even somewhat. Anyways theres a chance we may see lang, which would be most likely be the comeback story of the year. You gotta look at the odds rights, were due for some postive bounces considering this roller coaster year.
Does the salary cap still considered in play-off ? If it does, we have to take away a player whose salary is about $4M
I was thinking the same thing.
Because a salary goes until the end of the season, so technically his salary wouldn't be there. Or even if it didn't, there's still 1.5 ( I think) in cap space left, so that may be sufficient to absorb whatever part of his remaining 4 million is there.
