Correct me if I'm wrong but that didn't stop you from believing he wanted Doughty cash.

In any event, try to view this from an outsider's perspective. What would make more sense. Does it make more sense that PK is actually opting to go in a lockout because he isn't getting the moon? OR does it make more sense that Bergevin is holding firm on a small bridge contract at a too low price tag?
I don't think you need to be this super insider to figure out what is more likely.
In the end, we still don't know. However, the most logical thing points towards management holding out (they are trying to instill a financial philosophy, they are close to the cap, and the cap drops by just short of 7M next year).

Bergevin is getting a huge pass now because he's a rookie GM. But this isn't making me too confident in their vision and evaluations.
