All in attempt in order to gain the favor of the fans in ditching him.
With that said, Cammy didn't really fit and he has since been overpaid. Works in the end, I just didn't like the way things worked out. DL is a good GM but his mouth rubs a lot of fans and NHL people the wrong way.
None of this pertains to my point. When it came late into the season he tries to be better than Anze and Dustin. His play when it came to offense was all about cammalleri. He tried to out shine them and he couldn't. This had nothing to do with off ice negotiations.
