I honestly don't recall this aspect of the negotiations, but regardless there are 2 differences:

1) That was Gauthier, this is Bergevin's policy.
2) Gauthier was stupid to the point that he performed negotiations backwards, trading the proven, winning, popular Halak BEFORE negotiating with the Price camp.
