About Bridge contracts.

First of all they were put in place for our franchise by Gauthier and Gainey. Nothing against those two, but I don't get why Bergevin is sticking to the concept.

I would say it cost us more in the case of a few players (Gorges, Plek, Price) and only worked out for Pacioretty.

Seems to me like it's a sketchy philosophy at best, that a lot of teams around the league do not believe in at all.
