I never really viewed him as cheap, just smart management. Sure he didn't retain MacClement, but he was asking for ridiculous salary because he simply didn't want to resign here/ wanted to go to Toronto IMO. And people may have complained about him not getting Suter/Parise/ the big fish but really we didn't have much chance of signing them even if he threw the bank at them, and with no roll backs, getting one of them would really hamper this team financially. He's great at resigning our guys to very reasonable contracts.
