Price has a spotty record in terms of providing good value to the club, Subban has always played to his contract. Doesn't mean the policy is bad, it means the organization takes on risk by treating their young top line drafted players in a consistent fashion.

If Price ***** the bed for 2 years it shouldn't change the policy of A-B-C, if Subban gets 8 more Norris trophies same thing. The policy forms a consistent way to deal with the athletes.

IMO , this is a great way to build loyalty in an organization that has now proclaimed itself development focused.
Price wanted the bridge contract, Gauthier wanted to sign him to a longer deal because that's what a smart GM would do. Price was willing to take a bridge contract and wait for the big payday and he got it. It isn't the same situation as Bergevin and Subban.
