Yes, but offering Subban a bridge contract puts the Habs in a very bad position. How can you tell Subban to take less money on the first few years of his new contract after winning the Norris? How can you tell him that nearing the end of his contract that he signs at 25, that will end at 33, that he should have less money in the 30-31-32-33 years, when he is in his prime? The habs had a great opportunity to make sure we have a star player at a discount. All signs pointed to him being great, and they didn't want to risk it.

Having an extra 1-1.5 million because your best player is on favorable contract, not only for management, but for him (He still makes 30+ million in 6 years). I could easily be a capologist, money, numbers, projection, efficiency is why I became a civil engineer. Had I known their could be a rout that would have me working with an NHL GM calculating the cap and how to get the most out of it, I would of done that in a heartbeat!
