PK will sit as long as it takes for him to sign the deal MB wants.
We finished 3rd last with Price and Pacioretty in the lineup, does that mean they didn't have any leverage in their negotiations?

With Markov and Gionta back, more depth added, and a healthy lineup our team definitely has the potential to make the playoffs with Subban in the lineup. Every game matters this year so the longer Bergevin waits to sign him the worse the Habs' chances are of making the playoffs.

Lots of fans are currently pissed off about missing almost half the year due to the lockout so I doubt they'd be happy if one of its most popular players is sitting out this year.
