Signing long term deal is probably not the only thing that lead to Myers being healthy scratched.

Subban and Myers are two different people who might react differently to the same situations.

It's not because Myers is a healthy scratch now that he will suck forever. It's not a huge deal. It happens. He will likely be back and will play well at some point, even if it's just next year.

As such, the fact Myers was healthy scratched is not even close to being a proof that signing Subban to a transition deal was the right move. In fact, there is almost no link to be made here. It's as if I had said : Karlsson has 7 pts in 9 games, clearly Bergevin was wrong in signing Subban short term. Same illogical reasoning.

As always, it's important to use logic when making an argument.
You're right, Myers and Subban are two distincts cases. Myers won the Calder while Subban not even close. The point is it is quite risky to give a big money multi year contract after the ELC to a young player, because all can change really quickly in the NHL. Myers is one example among many others. Of course, when you have player like Crosby, Malkin or Karlsson, it is a different story. But there is no risk to give a low money two-year contract to Subban. If he really steps up after that, there will be no problem to give him the money we will deserve.

In brief, the people who called Bergevin a moron in this case was the dumbest here... If you not agree, send your CV to Geoff Molson.
