So chances are his replacement would come from outside the organization and looking at what Gonchar got signed to, I don't think it would be cheap. We are better off re-signing him.

2- Excuses? How can you compare two players but not look at their progression, production or their organization's bad habits?? What's important when making those comparisons is that those guys didn't deserve the big contract. They both just had successful rookie years, it's not the same as PK.
If you're gonna make a comparison then look at everything not just what works in your favor.

3- Of course you believe that, it's the only way anybody can support MB's decision. But when you look at PK's progression over the years dating back to juniors, then you know money doesn't drive PK. The guy just learns quickly and he's a work horse. Have you not seen PK do interviews? Or seen his off ice training? Kid gets into fights with teammates durin practice because he battles too hard. There's really no reason to think this kid would just sit back and chill out on a big contract. If he did, I wouldn't be hearing about how he wants to be the best Dman in the NHL or how he wants to be a true leader. Money doesn't put this mindset .

I guess we'll see, if all PK wanted was that big deal, then bridge or not bridge, then we should see him regress when he gets it.
wrong. I'm fine with MB decision and I don't think P.K. will become lazy or anything when he'll get a huge contract... and i'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
