Bergevin is a fresh face, so he currently has the benefit of the doubt from the majority of people. The other factor is he is francophone, so whatever he does right now is going to get praised by the franco-media.

This wouldn't be happening under the Bob Gainey regime, one I think Bob would have signed PK. Two, Bob would have never let the media smear PK Subban signed or not the way they currently are. Three, the media would be smearing Gainey.

I'm not even a fan of Gainey, as a matter of fact I hated him. I do think he would have handled the PK Subban situation much better though. He wouldn't be flexing the way Bergevin is.
I see where you are coming from and your points are valid however I think PK's Subban's popularity amongst fans (especially the ''younger'' fans) will prevail over the francophone-old-fartz smear campaign that we see in the media on shows like anti-kaka.

My money is that the young, talented, swagger of PK Subban has more appeal than anything that can come out of '' Jean-Guy-Michel Bergefak'' azzhole.
