Let say the Gomez don't work....does Koivu sticks around? Some say he wanted to go....some others say he would have but Gainey thought it was time to move.....But it was time 'cause Gainey thought Gomez was THE guy.

And by the way, the Habs would have been in rebuilding mode? Seriously? You think they would have let that happen? We would have tanked that year? Geez, so no Gomez, Gionta and Cammy (though Gionta didn't say that on OTR and his story about going back to Lamoriello with Habs offer is public knowledge...) would have meant one Tavares, Hedman or Duchesne....another reason to hate Gomez....as if I needed more.....
Not what I meant. I meant to say that other players would see us in a rebuilding mode. At that time, Koivu, Tanguay, Kovalev, Komisarek(who was good for us), Lang, etc. all of our top players or almost left. Hence, we "looked" like a team going nowhere which is where I brought up the idea of looking like rebuilding because, in a way, we did, but only through free agency.
