Think your passion or dislike is making you a little over the top here. Point is he coulda gone after a perenial 80 pt guy and given him a lengthy expensive contract if he wanted to and didn't. He might absolutely SUCK at restraint. You could argue he wasted the money on EC, Fro, etc and that he shoulda spent it on Kovie so by trying to restrain himself he just f***ed up in a different way...but then again he didn't give out a 7+ year 100 mil deal he just signed a few 1-2 mil deals for 1-2 years which to me is restraint.

Maybe he's still a bad GM and when he gets money as we both said we'll see what he does but he did finally show SOME restraint. You could argue it was miniscule and the future he may lose it again and I agree with that but he did show SOME.
