I don't get how half the people who voted don't think it was smart to make sure we have PK locked up for pretty much all of his prime years. I am very happy with the initial deal which gives us cap room to better surround our young players while we let a few contracts run out.

PK should well be worth that 7M per year for the duration of the contract and it will kick it at an optimal time for management. MB's looking at the long term, he wants this team to compete year in/year out and the only way he can achieve that is with the proper timing. All we need to look at are teams like Detroit and Chicago, they mostly build from inside and have added key players via trade at the right moments.

Some people may think I've got rose colored glasses, but I think the vast majority of Bergevin's decisions have been the right ones. The future is bright and for once I really believe the Habs will have long term success, no more of this flash in the pan BS.
