No it's a bridge deal. It's, let's sign you to a 2 year deal so at the end of the term you are still a RFA so we can sign you to a longer contract. We keep your rights for longer so we can trade you when we wish. The alternative is we sign you to a non-bridge contract and you walk out on us at UFA cuz Habs fans are crazy and Quebec taxes suck!
It's a 4 year deal but DD can always be traded for draft picks.
