I'm not mad at Gainey for not handing out huge long-term contracts to free agents. Think about it: with such good young talent coming on nicely in the AHL and in junior hockey, you wanna make sure there will actually be some roster place for players like Plekanec, Higgins, Chipchura, Perezhogin, Latendresse and Kostitsyn when they are ready to step up and contribute at the NHL level. You don't want to have them playing at an inferior level just because of huge 5-year contracts you gave to UFAs.
