Well well I've got it now.
I never thought Mr. Gainey could hatch such a diabolical plan.
Think about it, makes a lot of offers, signs none, forces a ton of GM's to overpay and hand out long term contracts. The Habs will be sitting pretty come next year. Watch Boston get Shanahan for 3-4 years at 5.3 mil or so. Yes for a 37year old. At 4 mil or so for 1-2 years Shanahan could have helped the Habs but not at over 5 for over 2 years it's too much again.
It looks like Gainey is setting up a Hab Dynasty in 2-3 years. every one else will be over-commited for years. Watch a bunch of other GM's try the Lou Lamerello way of getting out of CAP trouble, Tell everyone that your underacievers all decided to retire and walk away from thier millions in contracts just for the heck of it.
Leaving you with a completely free hand for your CAP.
