CanadiensMTL Good learscove CanadiensMTL I guess Gardiner didn't want to play in Toronto either. Where is the outcry on that? CanadiensMTL Meh CanadiensMTL He wanted out from the Canadian hockey microscope. He’ll be happier in Carolina.

CanadiensMTL What a guy eh? CanadiensMTL He has strong morals !!!

CanadiensMTL Cant blame him. Who would want to play for that dumpster fire of an organization CanadiensMTL THANK GOD. CanadiensMTL AColasante88 CanadiensMTL Reznorsboy CanadiensMTL From Montreal? Lmao can’t blame him! FAN590 CanadiensMTL He turned it down because the microscope in Montreal is just as strong as Toronto and after several blunders he would feel the wrath

BlueJacketsNHL Details ⬇️ BlueJacketsNHL This is the marner offer from Dubas BlueJacketsNHL Imagine ... awesome matthews makes that in one season

CanadiensMTL Good. No one will get on his case about the 10 giveaways per game in Carolina. He can collect his paycheck in peace. awful CanadiensMTL Smart move CanadiensMTL Habs continue to take big CanadiensMTL Lol so Montreal offered a contract in line with what 2nd pairing dmen get. And we offered 5 x 6 per lol. sqk19 jimmybones989

Fan2Abby CanadiensMTL LOL imagine Gardiner in a playoff game for montreal in that market😂😂😂 that fan base woukd eat him alive! CanadiensMTL Haha he’s not very good at math apparently... CanadiensMTL He is a massive vagina CanadiensMTL Obviously he went to the he hurricanes because he actually wants a chance to win the cup goleafsgo

CanadiensMTL Hate to see it replaybeatles CanadiensMTL Smart move....why pay all the high taxes here in Quebec. . And get stuck with all the language restrictions we have here

CanadiensMTL That would have been heartbreaking if he signed with MTL CanadiensMTL I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet, and I'm paraphrasing a reddit post, but after comparing after tax income of both contracts he makes more per year in Carolina. Plus in Carolina he's a 3/4 D guy where he's comfortable. He's not the top pair D he'd need to be in MTL.

CanadiensMTL He would have folded like a cheap lawn chair playing in Montreal. I’m glad he turned it down. CanadiensMTL He clearly doesn't want to play anywhere with media attention or more than 3 fans. That's why he chose Carolina, nothing to do with money. AATHabs CanadiensMTL So ya to turn that down is just saying i don’t want to play for your team period

CanadiensMTL One of the concerned he has is playing in a fishbowl like Toronto or Montreal where his every move on and off the ice is reported. He will enjoy the peaceful hockey setting in Carolina. CanadiensMTL Who was it who said: In life, we get too soon old, and too late smart! CanadiensMTL Gardiner when CanadiensMTL put their offer on the table. Well done Jgardiner272 . Well done.

CanadiensMTL Leafs fans: Gardiner sucks, we don’t need him Also Leafs fans: Haha Gardiner didn’t sign with you CanadiensMTL That's huge brownie points for Jake! Nobody want to play for the Canadiens.

Report: Columbus Blue Jackets, D Zach Werenski reach three-year, $15M deal - TSN.caAccording to Aaron Portzline of The Athletic, the Columbus Blue Jackets have agreed to terms with defenceman Zach Werenski on a three-year, $15 million contract. What a deal for jackets. Wonder if more RFAs start folding. Awesome Great deal for CBJ

CanadiensMTL He's not worth 2000.000 CanadiensMTL He's a bum .Glad he's gone. FROM a Leaf's fan CanadiensMTL Hahahahahhahahahahha CanadiensMTL Good for him, smart on his part CanadiensMTL Can you blame him ? CanadiensMTL This poor guy is like a dog that gets abused for no reason but is still 100% loyal to it’s owner

CanadiensMTL big_sherk CanadiensMTL Pratt speculated that Gardiner may not have wanted to play under the microscope of another Canadian market. Lacks the mental toughness to play there. Did the Habs a favour by turning down this reported offer. May be OK in Car. if sheltered. CanadiensMTL If Aho was there maybe he signs too I mean Aho was willing to play for Canadiens... why would anyone be butt hurt about gardiner turning them down? Also funny that he is united with Aho in Raleigh now

CanadiensMTL Good man!

Blue Jackets ink Werenski to three year, $15 million dealThe Columbus Blue Jackets locked down 22-year old defenceman Zach Werenski with a three-year deal worth $15 million. Werenski posted 11 goals and 44 points in 82 games last season while averaging 22:53 of ice time per game. It’s a good deal for a player like him (my opinion)

CanadiensMTL If you think he didn't choose MTL for rivalry reasons, get your head checked. He's American, taxes, no pressure. Really!!! CanadiensMTL I would too CanadiensMTL I have new found respect for Jake. Good on ya!! CanadiensMTL Looking at all those butthurst Maple Laughs fans comments here you are losers since 1967 😂😂🤣

CanadiensMTL If he was playing for Montreal he would be passing the puck to Toronto AATHabs CanadiensMTL Not sure why this is news. Are we going to get articles on each free agent and who they turned down? AATHabs CanadiensMTL He wouldn't have been able to handle the media circus that is Montreal. Which by the way I am quite glad he wasn't signed.

AATHabs CanadiensMTL Too much pressure in Montreal for him CanadiensMTL If it turns out that that is in fact why he signed in Carolina, then everyone wins. We don't need a player who doesn't want to be here. He'd be miserable, it would impact his game. And hockey fans in Montreal are certainly not above booing someone out of town.

CanadiensMTL Atta boy Jake

CanadiensMTL Can't say that I'm upset about that 😁 CanadiensMTL Who the hell wouldl want to play for a toilet seat of a team CanadiensMTL CanadiensMTL LLL CanadiensMTL Atta boy CanadiensMTL CanadiensMTL Guess he didn’t talk with Max Domi CanadiensMTL I’m not a habs not....but I find it crazy how NO ONE wants to play there

CanadiensMTL Good man Jake ....you don't play for your enemy!!

CanadiensMTL Phew!!! CanadiensMTL I would have done the same thing, heck the guy wants to make the playoffs, smart move Jake! CanadiensMTL A true MapleLeaf. Nothing says more that you truly bleed blue and white when you turn down the Canadiens. CanadiensMTL MTL would have been a hot seat for him 🙄 he should rock it in Carolina

CanadiensMTL The habs saying thank God we didnt get Jake have to be a little upset another player didnt want to play for them. CanadiensMTL Being a Leafs fan, I am disappointed he didn't sign with the Habs. CanadiensMTL Good because he's a liability back there. CanadiensMTL Over rated D man ,just throw the puck at his feet on the rush and oh what a adventure it mite be ...

CanadiensMTL xCoreyDunnx oof, sorry pal CanadiensMTL The pressures of the Canadian hockey market, aren’t for everyone. Montreal, like any other team, deserves a player who wants to play there. And there are many good ones on the Canadian market itself. NHL hockey

CanadiensMTL Once a Leaf always a Leaf CanadiensMTL Lol love it CanadiensMTL Bullet dodged. The Habs have enough average to below average defensemen. Make better choices, Bergevin. FAN590 CanadiensMTL A proud Leaf to the very end! Good luck Jake! CanadiensMTL A leaf till the end... CanadiensMTL Yet theyll still tell u how great it is Gorges said he didnt want to go to Toronto..

CanadiensMTL ayyyyy atta boy Jake CanadiensMTL It could be like Josh Gorges did, He wouldn't go to the Leafs because of being with Habs just wouldn't feel right to play for them CanadiensMTL Poor representation CanadiensMTL

CanadiensMTL Not everyone has the character to play in big markets. Some like playing where nobody cares. CanadiensMTL Don’t blame him Zombieguy19871 CanadiensMTL The Habs can't win for losing another one to the Hurricanes lol CanadiensMTL Coward CanadiensMTL He thinks he was having a tough time in Toronto, he would have had a nervous breakdown in Montreal with his play. Best to go to the lowest attendance in the league

CanadiensMTL If he joined Montreal, no way in hell was he getting a standing ovation in his return. CanadiensMTL Thanks Jake. We already have Petry as good Offensive dman with defensive liability CanadiensMTL Good job jake! Love it CanadiensMTL As he should. CanadiensMTL Wow, near the anniversary of his friend John Tavares also shutting down the Montreal Canadiens
