How's Tyler Myers 7 year deal looking to you right now?
So are you saying that PK would not have been nominated or rumored to win the Norris had he signed a long term deal before the season?..
Is that what you convinced yourself of?

In any event, if the reasoning behind the deal was to get more UFA years out of PK, then you would make sense, but Bergevin never hinted once at that. He talked about trying to implement a salary structure to set a precedent, he talked about maturity and needing to see certain things from PK. Not a single rumor came out about this having anything to do with free agency years.
If that's what it's about then PK should be signed until his last RFA year and then re-signed.

Bergevin could have signed him for cheaper last year. No matter what the amount he's signed to, it would have been cheaper had he inked this deal before the season.
Is it so bad that it's going to affect us?? I don't think so, but still, he should have been signed long term already because he had already proven enough.

If Galchenyuk has back to back 80pt seasons, we won't need him to prove more things and so sign a bridge deal. There was no necessity for a bridge deal with PK.
