The bridge contract is what has created this disaster in the first place. While other teams are locking up their stars to long term, cap friendly deals. Montreal is moaning over an archaic philosophy because they refuse to modernize. Telling Gomez to stay home was hardly revolutionary. We already knew Sather intended to do it with Redden and TSN was speculating since the summer.
