Not a Habs fan, but trying to get a grip on this one.
Maybe Bergevin's argument is that if no one offer sheets him for $4M, then there is no reason for him to go that high. He will match an offer, but until such an offer is made, there is no reason to offer such money.

As they say in The Wire: seniority sucks!

Realistically, Bergervin doesn't want to sign Subban too early because we would simply be too good for the league. For the health of the NHL, we have to control our utter dominance.
