If he feels he didn't get what he thought was supposed to be fair and performs the exact same way, he might ask for the moon + what he thought he was due?

At the end of this contract, the club might elect team arbitration right away. Just like for Price to prevent offer sheets. PK will just look at the 2 years left before UFA and you know what's gonna through his mind, just accept arbitration... (which is 1 or 2 years if I'm not mistaken at the club's choice)

That's how tough things might get. You can't take advantage of someone all the time. He'll bite at some point.

This is a bad decision fans won't regret, cause they won't remember for squat when he's either traded or decides to leave as a UFA.

fugly work.
This is probably the stupidest thing I've read on here in a while.

Yes, curse those bridge contracts. How dare the Habs not sign a really good player coming off his ELC to a long-term, multi-million dollar contract? He's gonna leave by the time his 3rd contract rolls around, just like Price and Pacioretty!

Oh right...

When Plek had a bridge contract he went to arbitration and told the media that he didn't feel he was respected with the offer he was getting, he finaly got a contract way under what he was hoping for for very short terms. When it was time to renew his contract as a UFA he had no hard feeling and didn't rob the bank or walk away.
