Now Bergevin have respect, Subban change for the best, we had the best of the deal, anyway we needed to wait after Gionta\Gomez\Kaberle\cole (at the time)/Markov contracts to be done
People wanted PK signed next year precisely because we could have signed him at a cheaper price than what we'll have to either this summer or the next.
I don't think anybody expected PK to actually win the Norris as early as this year, but plenty of people already viewed him as one of the best young Dman in the NHL that would keep progressing into one of the best overall. That's why they wanted him locked up asap to a long term.

We missed on an opportunity to sign our best player to a much cheaper deal.
