These are some of the contracts Gillis has signed outside of the Luongo one:

Edler for 4yrs at $3.25mill/yr before this one
The Sedins for 6yrs at $6.1mill/yr
Kesler for 6yrs at $5mill/yr
Burrows for 4yrs at $2mill/yr, and now 4yrs at $4.5mill/yr
Higgins 2yrs $1.9mill/yr
Hamhuis for 6yrs at $4.5mill/yr
Bieksa for 6yrs at $4.6mill/yr
Garrison for 6yrs at $4.6mill/yr
Hansen for 3yrs at $1.35mill/yr
Lapierre for 2yrs at $1mill/yr

The only questionable one (now) has been the Malhotra contract, though it's hard to blame him based on his injury. Malhotra earned every penny of his contract before he got hurt.

The worst contracts on the team are Ballard and Booth's... both players acquired via Florida.

I'd say that's a pretty good track record to suggest he's pretty good at contract control, despite the much debated Luongo contract.
