PK is a special player, plain and simple.
It makes absolutely zero sense to me. Marc Bergevin is picking his battles, unfortunately he's picking the wrong ones.

Four years to Brandon Prust at 10 million, but playing hardball with our best defender. I'm tired of ex-players and their complete lack of understanding with running a business.

The bridge contract nonsense is so silly. You pay players based on their worth, not on their age.

We finally have a keeper who wants to be here long term and we fight tooth and nail to save every penny. Ridiculous.
