This great misconception that Gomez was THE deal braker that made it possible to acquire Gionta and Cammy....So a guy like Gomez who had a terrible year was much more a dealbraker than a courageous captain who was just as capable of putting points on the board. A Koivu that was also known as a playoff performer would not have been able to made those acquisitions possible...Try overpaying BIG TIME for Gionta and an overpayment by Cammy, and you have your reasons.....When Lamoriello say to Gionta to jump on the Habs offer......you know it's a whole lot about the money.
