That is not Gainey's fault 100% Players just DO NOT want the pressure of playing in Montreal. We have offered more money and still lost out on players, that should tell you all you need to know.

They are trying to entice players to come and play here...the new state of the art practice facility comes to mind. I've also read that Gilette spares no expense at putting the team up in better hotels with better meals, etc.

With a salary cap, you can't just overpay anybody for the sake of it anymore.
