2nd Favourite Team

The way i see it, 2020 to 2022 , we should be playoff contender,
In 2022-23, the cap hit will hit big time as your post clearly shows. Suzuki getting paid in the areas you mention, and Weber still there. I think a 2 years retool will occur at that time, until Weber retires.
When weber retires, we'' suddenly have 8 miilion to spend on 2 top 6 guys, or one top 3 guy, this will make a huge difference.
In other words, because of Price and Weber contracts, we'll have a good team for a few years, but not a Stanley Cup team that can beat Mackinnon and friends !
I hope Weber is unprotected and Seattle picks him, but it is unlikely.
Can't afford to pay Weber 8 M cap space when he'll be 37 yrs. old.
We need but we can't.
At first, when habs signed Edmundson, i was very angry cause i knew immediately this meant that the habs decided they would not invest in a a top 2 mobile LHD (Dunn, Sergachev, OEL, etc).
After I did a few caps projection, I understood why.
Given that the habs want to keep their core (price, weber, petry, Gally, Danault, etc), and resign KK and Suzuki, they can only afford to spend on either a top 6 forward or a top pair defenseman, not both. In other words, they can only invest in a 7 or 8 million player, not 2. Assessing our main weakness in playoffs was scoring, they decided to go with offense. My 50 cents. So sorry but no Sergy
