He will not get close to league max. That's the point of a long-term contract. Front-load it like crazy and then let it drop off at the end. League max is what, 12 million/season? Not going to happen. He won't be anywhere close to that. It will be a Richards-esque contract.
The forward UFA crop is TERRIBLE. Suter is a top-5 player at his position, it's not even arguable at this point. He is entering his prime. If it creates a back-log of talent isn't that a good thing? That is when a trade makes the most sense.
