I know it's great for the cap but giving young players too long a contract before they reach their potential is a slippery slope.
I fully agree with you, and the overall effect is not that bad, some assume we could have gotten Subbie for 5-7 yrs at 5mil (!!!) but I would rather assume that the bridge contract plus the hopefully 5 yr contract he will get will not be that much more. Better cap planning at this time, and the point you make above is a very important one. I don't see why people keep mentioning Subban's contract as a mistake by Bergevin, it was a choice he made, it's always a gamble either way, and I would have been OK with either course of action, but I prefer the route Bergevin took.
