Not people, Cammy said it.
All he had to do was talk about the rich history and that would of been more than enough but no, as another poster previously pointed out, he went out of his way to cite the Gomez trade as a "BIG FACTOR" in his final decision.

You're kidding yourself if you don't believe there were comparable offers on his plate at the time. Most notably from Toronto and Ottawa.
Funny how Burke was talking up Cammy before July 1rst and then pretty much insulting him after he talked to Cammy and then he went and signed in Montreal.
He says that Cammy is too small and not his kind of player, then goes out and makes a hugely ridiculous deal to get one of the softest players in the league in Kessel....C'mon man!
