If there was anything I hated about the Gainey/Gauthier era more than anything else it was signing these aging vets for big money.
The five year plus deals are all a gamble. I remember thinking the Pens giving a 5 year deal to Gonchar or the Habs deal to Hamrlik as bad deals. Both turned out well.
Alot seem to turn out poorly though. Look at the Ovechkin, Luongo, Lecavalier etc. deals.
I hope the Subban deal is an example of the philosophy of the new regime.
I.e., avoid long contracts, period.
