Yeah, it seems as though Monty just saw how the roster was shaping up, and it looked like he would be the 12th or 13th forward, or the 7th or 8th d-man, and I think he just wanted a regular role on a team. He said months ago that he would wait to see what his role on the team would be before making his decision to resign or not, I believe. On Anaheim, he knows he'll definitely be on the third pairing, and play a lot more than he would here. It's just a better fit for him. I wish him well, he's worked hard to get to where he's at.
