Let me play devil's advocate.

Bergevin has reports telling him Subban is taking too much space in the locker room for how old and experienced he is. So they think if they give him the big deal, he'll be un-coachable because they think Martin and co let him run around and do whatever he wanted (triple low fives, etc). So they say : We'll show him who's the boss, it's not him, it's us. Only way to do that is to make him come to camp with a bridge deal because if they give him a big deal, he will have the big head and think he's untouchable. We can give him his big deal after we have shown him something else than the Gauthier/Martin circus.

Not saying I believe that.. but again playing devil's advocate just to see what others think.
