Don't forget the following:

1) he offered Daniel briere an 8 year and 50 million dollar contract.
2) he offered something similar to Ryan smythe.
3) he wanted to keep komisarek and Kovalev in 2009.
4) he was willing to give up plekanec for Kovalev.
5) hainsey and beauchenin lost to... Waivers.
6) he only lucked into his best UFA signing (Hamrlik) because sourray turned him down.

On the other hand, he offered digging, grabosky, and a 1st (????) for Hossa in 2008, which was our year, but the idiot GM in Atlanta turned him down, to take a happy offer from Pittsburgh.
