The crux of the problem is that Bergevin is not convinced that PK is the next Chelios. If he signs him long-term and PK stops progressing, we're in cap hell because there's too much money committed to Price and our D group and Bergevin will be stuck with another bad contract and unable to improve the team.

It probably feels like a big gamble from Bergevin's standpoint. But I understand where both sides are coming from.
I understand both sides as well, but which side do you think is 'right'?
