This club hasnít turned the corner but itís now at least on the right road.
Bergevin:

Is building a meritocracy . See Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Tinordi , and the other call ups. Weber, Kaberle, sit the **** down.

Donít like the Subban contract? Cry on another shoulder. Bergevin took one of the teamís biggest players , stood firm on principles, negotiated respectfully behind closed doors, and motivated him into the Norris echelon. Professional . Constructive. Good for the team.

Made a mid season trade that got a player that was on a good biorhythm for a displeased slumping player, transferring risk rather than taking it on (list of Gaineygoats blunders should be inserted here for contrast). Didnít execute trade in second intermission.

Draft picks at end of season > that of beginning of season. Eyes on big picture.

DD contract was generous but no NMC in play so I think that's one contract that comes with an eraser.
