Even with the taxes and our overpayments, players in Montreal are not making as much as somewhere else. Take Gionta for example. He makes 5M here...he would probably make 4,5M somewhere else. The 500K doesn't make a huge difference...he still makes less than another place at 4,5M.

But anyways, some players will come here because they want to...not only because of the money. We are a good team now. We have Carey Price and P.K. Subban. I think older players likes to go to teams with good young players because they know that those teams will only get better...
