From the player's point of view, it makes absolutely no sense. But no, of course, it's the Canadiens who messed up by not making him sign a contract he'd have to be an idiot to agree to.
So your trying to tell me that Josh wouldn't agree to a 4-year contract worth $12million? The man has been living off short-team contracts his whole career (I know he signed a 3yr with us before, but it was for peanuts...we definitely got the best of him).

Coming off knee surgery, Josh would have gladly locked in for 4years at 3M/yr. It gives him stability and security.
