What has this GM shown, really. He has a habit of saying one thing and doing the complete opposite, not sure how this would hurt his reputation. I wouldn't worry about the people who fawn over him because they will dismiss it as "an opportunity to good to pass up on". No harm, no foul.
We don't know how it will work under the new CBA, but under the old one salaries had escalated and giving long term front loaded contracts was one of the ways to "achieve" that.
As for Bergevin, he has shied away from giving fat, long term contracts to players he had interest in such as Vinny and Clowe.
