This has been endlessly debated with all of Sather's poor signings. In reality the player and the agent will determine an amount that they're going to seek, then the agent and the GM discuss the amount, then the GM has to offer the amount. Yes Sather had to offer the contract but their needed to be a negotiation between the GM and the Agent and the Agent needed to know where the player wanted to be or where he valued his player. It's not 100% on Sather, the Player and Agent are involved too. And for that matter so is the Coach who says I want that guy (Redden) over that guy (Streit) because as we all know by know, Sather makes personnel moves based on what his coach wants.

I think I'll have to pray to the hockey gods every night for it.
