The point and the only point frankly is that based on a stupid, if that's the case, policy, we might lose one of the best prospects we've have in a long time or alienate him so next time he has a chance he'll leave. A prospect, should I remind everybody, that most people counted on to diminuish the impact of losing anothe prospect for Gomez.

So as an organization, if we screw up on the Subban front, and after screwing up on the McDonagh front, we would have succesfully got rid of 2 future great players that would have formed for close to 15 years, the greatness of our defense.

Based on a panic move in 1 case....and on a stupid policy on another. See, this is where "professionnals knows best" theory takes a deep blow. Since when are those guys solely hired because of how competent they are. Most are hired based on the fact that they played the game. A lot are hired because they are friends with. A few happen to be extremely brillant. Look at who succeeds to know who are who......

I don't know how competent Bergevin is. But I know that if we lose a guy because of that policy, that would be totally dumb.
it didn't take much time during Pac bridge contract for the Habs to give him a long term extension... what makes you think that if PK signs for two years and he has a great season, that it won't satisfy Bergevin and CO and that this summer, they don't offer him that 5 or 6 or 7 years contract??? We don't know it all....
