The reason MB position makes no sense, is that he'll end up undoubtedly paying more for those years in two years than if he were to just give them now.
The habs are not in a pickle at all financially. With Gomez off the books next year and the 2nd amnesty buyout. PK's demands are a non issue. After that, there are plenty of expiring contracts that could be moved or even re-signed depending on the young cores development and the evaluation of the teams progress.
I'd rather give a little extra to pk now than to free up space to make another UFA signing that is unlikely to improve the team significantly enough to go from poor to contender, we need no money next year for UFA's. We shouldn't even being entertaining that market as of now.
