Wasn't Gauthier the assistant GM? Who else had more input, or opportunity to shape the GM's perspective of the worth of his assets. GMs ultimately end up finalizing/approving the contracts, but you should know that it's typically based mostly on the recommendations of the assistant GM working with the head of talent/scouting. Without knowing, sure we can't harp on particulars of motivations behind Deal A or Move B, but don't be foolish enough to submit that it's best to treat them as separately/individually operating members throughout the process.
