PK was lowballed
PK would have won the Norris even had he signed long term
Bergevin made a mistake in not signing him long term regardless of everything
PK had no issues to work on
There was no risk in signing him long term
PK will make more now that he's won the Norris
PK could potentially have had a drop in production (Myers & Skinner)
PK might have used this bridging contract as additinal motivation to prove the Habs wrong
Bergevin wants to instate a way of doing business with the bridging contract
He knows that others will follow suit, including Galchenyuk, and he'll now be able to say "Even PK had to take a bridging contract"
The cap will go down to a little over $60M next year, down from $70M+
By the time Subban's contract is up, Gionta and Markov's contracts will be done
Subban had issues in the dressing room, even fighting with teammates in practice
Hockey is a business and feelings come second. Players and management know that.
Now that he's proving himself and has improved, including winning the Norris, PK will be getting his big contract, something Bergevin has said not having a problem with.
