If you cannot tell the conditions under which both players agreed to sign for bridge contracts, and see that it's different from Subban's, then I don't know what else to say.

Pacioretty: Signs an extension during the off-season of 2010-11 after 2 half-seasons in the NHL going 17g,15a and 14g,10a, respectively. Of course, he had that horrible injury and there was some speculation regarding his health, I'd assume.

Price: Does this have to be mentioned? Okay...the guy signs a bridge contract in the off-season of 2009-10 where he underperformed in the regular season going 13-20-5 and got outplayed by Halak in the playoffs.

Subban: Plays 77 and 81 games in his 2 seasons, has solid regular season numbers, and puts up decent playoff numbers. By far the better player at the end of his ELC when compared to the above two.
