I would say at the least its noteworthy, especially considering the topic at hand is "GM of the Year" and those irrelevant signings are the bulk of what he did this summer. I'm not advocating he's a horrible GM, far from it, but let's not enter lollypop land either.
In the bigger picture, I think they are pretty irrelevant. If they ever become a problem then they're waived. Acquiring Walker also gave us room to bring in Zherdev let's remember. Considering Gagne may well not have played all season, we've effectively got a free forward in here.
Shelley's also not playing too badly right now! Can't believe i'm saying that, but it's true. Three years was a bit weird, but he's also waiveable.
