Are the "intangible" elements that a respected teammate like Moen carries into the room during a stretch run factored so much more highly than we do? I'm not even sure how either of those argue against making an offer right now, however.
I get it that maybe an ex-player like Gainey would look at asset management with a tilt towards the value of keeping the player around, a player-centric perspective. I sort of think of Gauthier as a bit more development-oriented, however, where assets like picks and prospects could carry a little bit more weight. But who knows.
It is strange that all other teams in the NHL seem to be able to sign players during the season, yet the Habs never do.
