He was bidding against himself in all those trades for those players. (Leino deal aside)
The Pronger trade was fine. He got lucky with the Leino trade.
he overpaid for Versteeg(especially when the Flyers were the only team who even made an offer for him) the Meszaros trade turned out to be horrid bad.
