That's dumb because not every player is in the same position. Just like it's stupid to have a ''no negotiations during season'' standard. You can't expect every player to just wait and sign whenever you want, especially not if you're organization has been mediocre for 15-20years.
The bridge deal is dumb, PK had already proven to be one of the best young Dman in the NHL. There was no need for him to get a bridge deal who's usually for unproven players. None.
You also need to have vision, when you're gonna want to build a contender in a few years, you're better off saving a couple millions wherever you can, and signing PK to a cheap long term deal would have provided that.
If we believe PK would have signed to 4.5M then we're talking about possibly a 3-4M difference.
No it's not dumb. It's very sound.
