For similar contract, I believe he would choose Montreal by far. One person pro can be another con. If you think Montreal is such a horrible city, that's your point of view, but I don't share it. The langage issue is overblown, the media issue is overplayed. I'm tired of this. You may have to pay more for certain players, but if that's what it takes, do it.
Completely agree. To some, Montreal might be the place to be. But if you think that Montreal is great and my opinion is a minority, then why, oh why are the free agents not lining up to be in Montreal? Do you honestly think Gainey isn't doing everything he can do to get them here? Do you really believe he's lowballing them?
