It will be easy for the habs to get under the cap next year. It won’t be easy for them to do it without getting worse. If suzuki is signed long term, and Weber does not come back, the habs will need about 7 entry level deals inserted into the lineup, in addition to the ones they already have. That’s a recipe for disaster, not success. Who are these guys that the habs can insert into the lineup no problem?
Are you calling suzuki zucs? Are or are you referring to someone else? Let’s just use the guys name so i know who the heck you’re talking about.</div></div>
Teams get in to trouble due to terrible contracts such as signing guys like Alzy, or Alzner for instance.
Habs have a great core but in a cap world cannot be maintained just like every other team so they will have to find ways to keep the team competitive if that means one more run this year and then a drop off.
I loved what they did last season but personally don't think they will come that close this season, I can only hope they do though!
They never fully rebuild so yes it's sign a good player or 2 and slowly work to fill in the blanks getting better picking up player like Perry and Staal. there are always player like that floating around in addition to the Norlinders, Brooks, Poelings and Ghules of the world to name a few.
