The Habs players would have to "steal" another player's job if they went to another team. Not very brotherly. Would also solve the Gomez problem!!

It's not like Molson has $60M to just throw away in salary without a return. I'm not saying he would or should, but it's an option.
He'd have to renegotiate with everyone in one fell swoop. A quite a few guys would be in good position to demand more money right away. Its not a good option, essentially if Chicago's RFA error effected the entire squad simultaneously.
