Yet, while he might not be the easiest guy to live with it, I have way more problems with the leadership of this team if it's indeed true. I know a couple of vets in this league that would shut PK up and knock him out if needed so he'd quiet down. In here, they just dislike the way he conducts himself, well show him how it has to be done.
Bergevin said he wants to see PK by himself before signing him long term. He probably heard "things", maybe some players even talked to him. But at the same time, he knows he's got a gem of a player in PK and you don't throw away this king of player.

So logically, he wants to sign him to a short deal, to see what a coach like Therrien can do with him. If it doesn't get better, he'll be easier to trade with a short deal than a 6 years contract.

From a management point of view, a bridge contract is the only logical option.
