Rivet was NOT in the Habs plans, he was already a healthy scratch twice.
Rivet's best was NEVER as good as Markov's average days.
Rivet was gong to be a UFA in a few weeks, and the team was not going to re-sign him.
Markov has almost two years left on his contract and will likely re-sign again.
Now, on top of that, San Jose had no idea Gorges would turn out as he did, say hi to Aaron Palushaj. And of course Max Pacioretty turned out to be WAY better than the 22nd player of his draft year. No guarantee of that always happening, not be a long-shot.
