It's sort of natural, this way, he's hungry and wanting to prove what he's worth. I love it tbh, tough love! PK understands this, and everyone around him as well. Take the 2 year deal, go out and prove your worth, get rewarded!
And it,s not a real two year deal. He's gonna play 42-43 games for 2 million $ on this year contract (which is worthing nearly 4 million for a whole season) and gonna be paid 3,75 next season. Not too shabby. I guess bergevin and his agent will sit next fall to talk about extending his contract, and we should not be surprised to see an 8 years, 50 million + deal being negotiated.
