From a players standpoint, Gillis has always been good to his pto's. He offers them to other GM's when he doesn't think they would be a fit here. Dave Scatchard comes to mind. Also, Morrison's try-out led to him grabbing a spot with the Flames.
These low risk high reward reclamation projects seem to be part of Gillis' moneypuck strategy.
Keep telling yourself that "moneypuck" means anything. It's garbage, doesn't even work in baseball, nevermind hockey. The driving force (Billy Beane)'s teams haven't even sniffed the playoffs in 5 years.
