Speculation on my part but maybe this was discussed with Bergevin and he probably pointed out that many players don't want to come to Montreal for other reasons so why give them another. Burying a player in the minors will be seen negatively. Releasing him could build a little good will in the league.

Or

Paying him off could cost Molson less than if he sent him to Hamilton.
