I believe that if his goal is to play on a team that has the best chance of winning, seeking a max contract is not in his best interest. The question is not if the team can be competitive...assuming his goal is to have the best chance of winning the Cup, the question is whether the team can be a contender while paying him the salary cap max.
I don't think the answer is yes, especially considering that the players you name, who will be getting better, will be seeking their own high-value contracts.
