I sincerely hope he learns from the mistakes he made with PK. If Galchenyuk plays well (and that remains to be seen -too early to say) and MB pulls that tough guy act again, we alienate our younger star, pay more in the long run and run the risk of him asking for a trade.

If MB does this again, he should be shot twice and pissed on.
i guess it all depends on how the players end up. the hawks have tended towards generosity with the younger players they deem important. they gave leddy 2 yrs/ 2.7m...but if they were to get aggressive - what would they have saved? $300k / yr? does it really matter...and the hawks are publicity obsessed enough they would never stomach a 'sit out'.

hopefully bergevin gets w/ it enough he pays out Galchenyuk ... b/c you run the risk that someone from your conference scrapes together enough cap space they bone you w/ an offer sheet, no?
