By the way, if I never hear that phrase again I will be very happy.
I think this is more of an ego issue, with Bergevin trying to stand firm on his dealings.
Makes no sense that he'd lock out PK until he agreed to under 3M. I mean, not even the PK detractors during the negotiations were speculating so little.
Maybe he did want to buy himself the most cap space possible for the next year when the cap decreases. But doing it at the mercy of your best player was simply moronic. And if he didn't think PK was that good, then it's even more moronic.

What really made me laugh though, is when people compared PK to MDZ. That was priceless.
