That's my big beef too. Bettman is supposed to be this crafty lawyer who "wins" all his negotiations. I thought that would imply he was thorough. Getting a "signing bonus" four, five, six years
you sign doesn't pass the smell test.
I hope PK and Don Meehan aren't looking at the structure and length of deals such as these and licking their chops because their is NO WAY the Habs would ever try something this shady, whether it's Gainey, Gauthier, Bergevin or anybody else at the helm.
