Well his on ice play is really, really good... He plays way better offensively than a lot of people seem to think, and I don't think his offensive capabilities have ever been questioned... Plus, he's able to play physical as he has size and uses it. PK is a really complete defenseman, and would on any normal team be a first pairing D.
So he should get a huge contract in a near future. I just believe he should indeed sign a short contract (3 years) first, and then sign a bigger one for many more years at the end of the first contract.
But I understand the fact he definitely has leverage on his side, as people in Montreal absolutely love him, and would have a hard time forgiving Bergevin if he weren't able to sign a fan favorite for this season.
