Gauthier was decades behind other NHL organizations.

But he did decide to keep Price so he is a genius.
Perhaps his legendary bossiness helped in one case:

"Listen up Alexei, there is a new sheriff in town now, no more nice-guy player-friendly Bob Gainey to push around. I hereby command you to stop this KHL nonsense and come over this season. You got that? Good, see you at camp!"
