Which would makes sense for now. However I'm still not sold that bridge contracts actually save the team any money long term. It seems that it actually ends up costing us more when the players inevitable perform well, and receive huge cash outs at the end of their 2 year contracts.

I feel there is the possibility to lock up PK to a medium-long term deal (5-6 years) at a discount compared to what I project he will end up geting paid post bridge contract. Of course, that's mostly speculation on my part.
