For real...

However, Stubbs just said PK isn't asking for Doughty money, at all. Meaning, he's probably not asking for 5.75M.
So what gives?? How is PK the one vilified here?? Not going to blame the RDS guys for riding on the Bergevin side, they finally get access to the GM and coach, they love them for taking part in their shows and being so open to them, so very easy to predict they would back him up.

But fans?? I don't get it. I also don't understand how any fan would want PK to sign on a cheap long term deal. Really, doesn't make any sense. People should want this kid locked up on a long term deal at a decent price, which is what he's apparently asking for.
I don't remember hearing Bob say Bergie was offering 2.5-3 mil. I do remember him saying there might be a 3 mil difference in the contract value. But that seemed more of his opinion. I know that Bob is reliable. But as far as I know, nobody involved in the contract's signing has leaked info to anybody, and rightfully so.

I don't see why Bergie wouldn't sign PK for 5 mil, now that we no longer have Gomez against our cap. And that we'll more than likely see another amnesty buyout. Unless Bergie wants to save as much as possible in order to sign big ufas this offseason.
