I don't understand how its a 'mistake' to get 7 years.

Sometimes, longer is better since the cap should go up as revenue goes up. By holding the cap hit the same, you are able to spend more elsewhere.

Dustin Brown is probably the best example of a long term contract working in a team's favor. One could argue Kopitar as well.
