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.
I can almost guarantee that 2 years from, short of winning a Norris Trophy and Hart nomination...the same fans imploring PK to sign any bridge deal presented to him, will be the same fans complaining about the big long term contract he'll eventually sign
