Bergevin wants to give short term contracts before giving the long term ones, just like Price went through and Paciorretty, that's it. Subban has to wait for his turn, and that's why I want Bergevin to hold his case even though it means PK misses a good part of the season. He's the new GM in town, this case is very important, it will set the standards for negociation afterwards.
And as established many, many, many times in this thread, Subban is in a much better bargaining position than Price or Pacioretty were when they signed their bridge contract.

Subban already proved himself to the club he's reliable on the top pairing. The only thing he hasn't proved is that he is a true star; but the best is still to come.
