I don't get those who say Bergevin screwed up the with the PK bridge contract. Nothing will make me believe that the short contract did not contribute to his Norris trophy winning season.

PK had that extra motivation to prove his doubters wrong, slightly change his attitude to a team first mentality, and to be a leader. If Bergevin gave him the 5,6,7, year big money deal at the time, it would have been an insult to Patches, Price, and others who took the bridge contract and got paid later. It also sets great precedent for the Gallys as well.

Bergevin is trying to instill a team first culture and I am glad that we have a GM who has some balls to do what he thinks is right. PK is going to get paid, and Marc knows he will deserve it, plus the cap will be higher when his salary kicks in so no stressing if PK makes an extra million.
