I don't think it Gomez himself was so much a factor as what Gomez represented. i.e. that Montreal was serious about remaining competitive and were willing to act accordingly. In contrast to Toronto who have consistently failed to put together a competitive roster since the lockout.

Cammaleri probably could have gotten very similar take home pay elsewhere, money was probably a factor but so probably were other things.
