The bridge contract, imo, is for players that haven't proven anything other than great potential, or less. That's what Price had showed, MaxPac had showed good potential.
PK still hasn't reach his full potential, might never will, but he already has proven himself capable of handling top assignments. He is, without any question, among the better young Dmen of this league.

So, what would be the purpose of this bridge contract? Get him cheap for 2 more years, let him improve (no reason to think he'll stop his progression) and then sign him to a probably twice the amount?
Doesn't really make much sense. I get it for guys that haven't shown as much, but not for this case.
