There are big M Mistakes, and little m mistakes, and Gainey has made some of both.

This one is in between, a medium sized m type mistake, but it represents his lack of understanding of the late 200x game and how it plays under a salary cap. But probably more a mismatch between coach and GM philosophy that ultimately parties not consulting in the transaction are now left holding the debt.

A buyout is a terribly expensive resource waste, and BG has sure burned resources in his day. I hope this write-oops-erase practice ends now.
