If a "bridge' contract will cost 4.5-5 mil, may as well sign a back loaded 5-6 year deal like Zajac and Benn.

6 years 30 mil. 3.5 mil 4 mil 5 mil 5.5 mil 6 mil 6 mil
i think Bergevin would prefer paying a bit more in the later years and not lock it up now than doing that deal.

I totally see why you made that suggestion and I don't disagree with you, I just don't think Bergy wants the extra years and is willing to pay for it.

What I don't get is why PK does. Even Benn wanted the bridge contract because in the long run, the player gets paid more everytime I can think of.
