As for Gainey's negotiting policy, I had no problem with it, as he said, if the player wants to be here then he'l remain here.
Your play-off revenue increases if you play more than 2 home games in the play-offs every season.
It's quite obvious that being a contender pays more than being a pretender.
The reality is, if you want to be a competitive team for a long time and want to win the stanley cup. You don't go about losing every asset you have for nothing. Which has been the Habs identity since they're last cup win.
