Bergevin wanted to see with his own eyes that he had something special in PK, and it turned out he had a Norris trophy winner. I don't think he will lose much sleep over his decision.
If Galchenyuk doesn't want a bridge deal he won't accept one. He only has to compare himself to what other centres/forwards equivalent to him are getting and demand that. He'll be offerred an offer sheet, you guys are just in denial.
