It's very telling that instead of telling us again how Gill is so much better than Hamrlik, you use a sarcasm to run away from the facts. The only thing Gill is better at is the PK, for the rest, Hamr hands down. Deal with it.
Kinda interesting really. TBH.......I don't know what Gauthier had in mind here because he clearly offered something in terms of money that I would think would have been okay with Hamr. But it appears it was offered too late and Hamr was confident he could get what he said all along he wanted - a retirement contract of sorts.
One has to wonder if Gauthier was playing on the emotions of Hamrlik's feelings since he'd spoken publicly about retiring in Montreal but then it backfired. Gauthier thought he'd shop a little and that didn't pan out as he would have liked. Hamr then decided that since he wasn't a priority he'd go get what he implied he wanted from Gauthier in the first place?
Just don't get what Gauthier was doing here because it was clear Hamrlik wanted to be back and then Gauthier made an offer that seemingly would have been attractive but the timing was off and there was no counteroffer. Had Gauthier lowballed Hamrlik it would make more sense but that doesn't seem to be the case.
