Not the sole intent, it was also noted that his conditioning was poor. That's not hindsight, I remember it being said at the time that he had enjoyed the fruits of his rookie success too greatly during that offseason.

That one decision alone helped cause a great deal of problems in the 2 seasons that followed.
Keeping the lights off and the training staff away from the Ice Haus and Arena in the summer saved some money....
