I think Bergevin, wisely I might add, showed Vinny and his camp that the Habs are interested naturally. But only under certain salary conditions.

While other teams don't have those same salary restrictions.

Lets see what motivates Vinny...
To remain a legit contender. MB probably explain him that he wants to keep Plekanec and will have the opportunity to play with Pacioretty, Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Eller, Plekanec, Gionta, Bourque etc.

Montreal becomes really attractive for a guy that won't need to be the Dynamo but a complement to the core.
