As much as I was against giving him a Doughty type contract, this offer is ridiculous (assuming that it is a real one).

Anyway, it's still not panic time. I'm assuming that a guy like Meehan, being paid the kind of money he is making, has a plan. After seeing that the habs did good with Markov and Price playing great so they wouldn't ear PK chants in the Bell Center, they probably leaked the offer info to get some public sympathy...

What we don't know is if they actually negotiated that offer, meaning that it might still be that low because PK never came back with a counter offer on a 2 yrs deal, but only spoke about 5-6 yrs deals.

I'm guessing it will either end up with a 2 yrs deal around 4M per, or Bergevin will ask a good friend to make an offer sheet that he will match on a longer deal, so he will have been "forced" to give PK the bigger contract.
