I like the bridge contract thing, not because of what it will cost or save regarding Subban (it will cost more), but because it sets an example for every single negociation the Habs will have with the Gallys and other good young players. Not every young player will become a Norris or a Hart, and if Bergvein can work that way with PK, he'll be able to do so with anybody. Every player will have to demonstrate, and not with one good season, that he can be a dominant player in the NHL. Hence, no mega deal after two years in the league, a la Hall / Eberle. Those are the bad contracts. You have a young player, and still pay him like a seasoned vet who already achieved big things. It kills your salary structure.
