Since when do Habs sign anyone to super long term deals after their entry level contract? He'll sign a 2 or 3 year deal taking him all the way to the final year of qualifying for restricted free agency, then when that runs out they'll either sign him for 4-5 years for big money or if he wants out by that time or something a short term deal taking him to UFA.
