Ya, I rather give the cash to our better young players, that will assure they'll stay here longer.

But, I'm not going to hold it against them, if Habs want to offer him a 2year deal only and make it a philosophy, fine. I don't agree with it because what if a guy like Crosby comes around, you gonna make him go through a bridge contract too? Kinda stupid. Should be a case by case, but wtv.
However, if what was said by Elliot Friedman is true, then the 2y deal comes with just under 3M of cash. You actually think PK should take this??
What if a guy like Wickenheiser comes around? Or maybe Daigle or Komisareck or Dipietro or any number of hyped up players who looked good and then turned into disasters. I don't think 3 million is enough personally but I believe Bergevin would give on the price more than the term.

You guys who are arguing AGAINST responsible ownership are really amazing.
