How much of the blame is/should be placed on player agents?

I don't think you'll make a very good reputation by doing the wrong things for your client.
I'm not talking about what's best for him... if another agent called Fleury and said Dipietro got a better deal for you... guess what? Fleury would be PISSED.
Fact is if Fleury proves worthy enough the Pens won't send him packing to avoid bonuses like they did this year (and FYI all the bonuses, etc. are considered pretty standard for top-10 picks and it's called "the Joe Thronton model"... the only 2 picks since Thornton NOT to get that would be Staal and Horton).
