Wrong. It amazes me this continues to be dug up but here we are.

Gionta commented on Gomez but said that did not weigh much on his decision. He was impressed with the history of the Habs and taken aback by their adamant push for him. In short, he never anticipated a highly profiled team like Montreal would gun for him.

Cammalleri had already stated he wished to sign out east, citing Toronto and Montreal has preferred destinations. Vancouver was dark horse had neither of the aforementioned made an offer. He opted for Montreal because Toronto was his "home away from hockey" and he was afraid playing for the Maple Leafs would make it difficult.

Gomez had no influence on either of their decision.
