It helps us. That's it that's all.

Would you rather have PK+2-3M of free space, or PK+0 space?? It's really not that hard to understand.

Bergevin wanted PK signed to a bridge deal because he wanted to see some things out of him first. He simply didn't know enough on PK or wasn't sold on him. So he insisted on this stupid bridge deal so he can assess his value properly. PK clearly didn't agree with him, which is why there was a hold out. Now PK proved his worth to Bergevin. No problem with that, but everybody is happy when they get stuff at a discount.
If you want to buy this brand new beemer and it's on a 1 week promotion where you'll save 20%, are you not going to be happy about it?? Would you not love to get this discount???

Same freaking thing here. PK was a surefire bet. There was no risk in signing him long term.
That's also a fantasy...whatever PK signs for. There will still be cap space available.

Other teams find ways, there's no reason why the Habs can't
