I am thinking that the former has a higher chance of happening than the latter.
Even if Bergevin improves the team with the created space, it doesn't mean the next negotiations will go well or that our team will be better with PK's next contract.

If we use the space, but the PK gets a 7-8M deal, and we're forced to move some other contract then we won't necessarily be in a better situation.
So I guess we will see how things evolve. But IMO, the best idea is to sign him to an extension this summer (like Bergevin did with MaxPac).
