No, that would have been true for this year, on a smaller cap hit. If in 2014, his cap hit goes up by 4M instead of 2M, it becomes more problematic.
This is also under the assumption that Bergevin insisted on a bridge deal because he wanted the space to bring in another player. However he publicly said that he won't blow up a team just to bring in a guy, that he wants to continue with his opinion that rebuilding through the draft is the way to go. We also finished last in the previous year, and nobody thought we'd be at the top of the conference this year, heck some didn't even think we'd be making the POs. So I don't think Bergevin was thinking about creating cap space to bring in a top salary.
