Anyway, I'll never understand why we gave both length and terms to an unproven guy. If we were giving 7 years, we should have gotten a discount on the cap hit. Instead we paid a premium. Mind boggling.
I thought the whole point of developing players was so you didn't have to pay the UFA premium, yet with Price and almost certainly Subban we'll end up paying top dollar. I guess Bergevin didn't get the memo but in 2 or 3 years from now he'll figure it out. Gonna be a long, hard road for our GM, I think.
