Cap will be tight next year and Subban is a deal. Cap won't be tight the year after due to Gio and Marky possibly being off the books, and the cap going back up.

Whether people want to admit it or not, whether they agree with it or not, whether they argue their point until they're blue in the face, it doesn't change the fact that Bergevin's decision was fully justifiable and that's what we're saying.
First off Subban accepting the bridge deal will have no impact on what Galchenyuk and his agent ask for.

Second, if we lose Gionta & Markov because we need to make room for PK's salary then we are worse off as a team. Whether you like to admit it or not those are two very important pieces to a team that most argue is not even a real contender yet. Someone has to replace those minutes, and I guess do better since we aren't even a contender. Since established players will cost as much or more we are talking prospects, and most prospects don't reach their potential so we are likely going to end up even further from being a contender.
