THAT also gives you extra $ on the cap...



What wil you say in about two years if Gallagher keeps playing the way he is now ? give him his long term 3.7 Mil right now, we'll save in the long run ?
Keeping ALL of your players is impossible...figuring out which one's to keep is the real challenge. But when it's time to pay guys like Price, Subban...it's going to cost. That's the nature of business today.

You're also right, having players take bridge contracts also helps MB's save some money on the cap. There are so many ways to manipulate the cap, ways that I don't think fans are able to comprehend. Worrying about the team overpaying here and there is pretty futile.
