Major news: The Canadiens are in trouble for the upcoming season and Cole Caufield is one of the reasons

Although he didn't play all year because of shoulder surgery, Cole Caufield had quite a season. He was on track to reach the 40-goal plateau, the first time since Vincent Damphousse with the Habs.

However, his prowess generated extra spending for the Habs, so the team finished the campaign above the salary cap.

Indeed, four players received bonuses, which led the Tricolore to an excess of 1.17 million. Caufield alone received $637,500 in that total. The others are Kaiden Guhle, Sean Farrell and Jordan Harris.




Already tight under the salary cap, so the Habs will have a penalty and be at a disadvantage to half of the NHL teams, as 15 out of 32 organizations are over the allowable salary cap.
