Bergevin has to manage a budget. Cap next year will be 64 million. It's gonna be very tight even if he succeed to get rid of Kaberle's contract.
A bridge contract at 3,5-4 million per season to PK makes lots of sense. In a couple of years, Bergevin will be able to open the bank for him and give him a fat-long contract.
PK has also to prove in the meantime that he's not just a showboat. That he can mature and become more discipline as well as a respected teamate.
And Bergevin won't give him a 4 year deal because that would lead PK to total UFA status in 2017.
