Everyone points to Lou as being the smartest man in the sport and he has had free agent disaster after another. Ken Campbell of THN wrote Lou has done the poorest/worst job with cap management with the current CBA. 35 plus contracts. Getting caught circumventing the CBA.

NHL will push for non-guaranteed contracts in next CBA
We've already seen it considerably with the market correction on 2nd contracts. Look at the contracts of a few years ago signed by guys like Olesz in FLA. Heck, Eric Johnson signed for $2.6 million.
