MB wanted PK to earn his next big contract, PK went out and did it...let's at least give MB the chance to show that he's a man of his word. Who cares if he'll be making 3M more now then he would have had he signed a long term deal last year.

Had he signed a long term deal last year, he would also be up for another HUGE raise right in his prime years. Furthermore, precious cap space that fans continually obsess about would of been scarce with the cap going down next year.

Contrary to popular belief...Bergevin DOES have the long term security of this team in mind.
Gauthier wanted to sign Price long term because Gauthier understands how the cap works.
