I think a bridge deal was unnecessary and will end up being a non-optimal choice.

But it's not what bothers me the most. What bothers me is the lowballing into a holdout to your best player. Making him miss the beginning of the season. Most players struggle big time when they miss training camp + beginning of season. It was a stupid risk to take. Subban had earned more than freakin' MDZ. Subban clearly didn't have crazy demands. This should have gotten resolved in time for the first game. There's no excuse for that IMO.

And all of that for what exactly ? A low cap hit next season. I hope Bergevin makes the most out of it.
