Isn't there 3 parties involved here?
Cashman and Minaya have gotten blasted for some of the free agent signings they've made. Minaya's penchant for giving out bad contracts is part of the reason he was fired.... Castillo, Perez, K-Rod, Bay.

GMs are criticized in all sports when they make a bad free agent signing. And in a cap league such as the NHL, those mistakes are magnified even further. It's not up to the player or agent to ensure that their contract is cap-friendly. That's the GM's job, and he has to make the decision to walk away when the price gets too high.
