Edit: Did anyone else know that Gionta's spouse is named "Harvest." Her name is Harvest Gionta. What an odd name
If he had spent his entire career with Montreal, I think that you would have had a point. However, he's only been there for a few years. The organization doesn't really owe him anything, and he's pretty overpaid.

Montreal has players coming up that are more than capable of replacing him. Gallagher looks like he could be like him.
