The point is that UFAs have all the power, only once or twice in their careers, they decide where they want to play and nobody else. The fact a UFA would choose Montreal only to be backstabbed a few weeks later would be a massive blow to our team's reputation among future UFAs.

It's true that I exagerated though, we might get away with only 9 years of being the NHL's new Syberia after this move.
