Why couldn't they win in Philly when they were 1 game away from doing it a couple of years ago, and then actually did it this year? Seems like a pretty convenient excuse that we would never afford our own GMs. Maybe Gainey traded McDonagh away because he knew he couldn't succeed in Montreal, and wanted to get something for him. Why not?
