I think DW at one point had the best interests of the team in mind, but at some point he probably realized that:
1. He wasn't going to be able to get another GM job in the NHL
2. If he did exactly what ASG wanted, they would never fire him.

I'm pretty sure the moment he figured that out was when he took over as coach for Heartley. In retrospect, that seems more like ASG saying, "We already paid for a coach this year, Don. We're not hiring another one. Figure something out. We don't care what, don't spend any more money on coaches."
