Nothing at all. For example, Tampa spent their money they wanted to spend in the offseason on Filppula. That's not an indictment of Pouliot. Neither is Montreal spending money on Cole instead. The cap was going down after his season in Boston.

In other words, there are other circumstances that have to do with why he's left. Yes, he's underachieved compared to his draft position. Yes, those teams chose to spend money elsewhere. That doesn't mean they couldn't wait to get rid of the guy. Hell, for all we know he's really weird and just loves 1 year deals.
