very much an option... both players went to the team who gave them the best $$/term combo, plain and simple.

Cammy was going to the highest bidder, he made that clear before leaving Calgary, and players who played with him in Calgary confirmed it.

but aside from those realities, it also makes ZERO sense to argue that a guy would leave a place where he had a career best season & great chemistry to go play with someone he's never played and a coach known for favoring players with strong defensive acumen (something Cammalleri does not have).

Gionta I don't have any "proof" for, but NJ made it clear they wanted him back but would not come close to matching that offer, common sense says that no other team was offereing 5million/5years

but yeah, keep telling yourself that lie if it makes you feel better.
