How about getting a top 3 contract when he had mid pack numbers? How about his mediocre playoff showings?
How do you offer a guy like that just shy of what Lundqvist is making and more than what Quick is making?
I'm baffled at how people think the contract was fair. I shouldn't even have to explain why it was a gross overpayment.
As for patience. Price has been with the Habs for 5 seasons and has been inconsistent. That said, I'm still willing to give him more time to prove that he can live up to his hype. But how do you give a guy $6.5M and use the word "patience" when he underperforms. I'd say it's a bad contract at this point and I said it the day I saw the numbers.
if Bergy plays hardball with PK's next contract after handing out overpayments to Price and DD
