Fact- gainey's no negociation approach backfired on more than one occasion
Fact- when you let people twist in the wind, they assume, rightly or wrongly, that you aren't that interested... Especially high achieves with big egos, which pro athletes are
Fact: you picked a horrible example. Souray ended up getting overpaid and his play nosedived after leaving Montreal. Maybe Gainey was right...
