I don't think you can say he refuses to overpay for a free agent. Both Wallin and Huskins were about to become free agents and he certainly overpaid for them. It could even be argued Niittymaki was an overpayment but at least he has some upside while there really was/is no reason to expect any upside out of Wallin/Huskins.
