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!
As someone else said, Do you really think Cammy was going to come out in the media and say " Yeah, I went to the Highest Bidder" People are very gullible.
