I think teams like Pittsburgh should be allowed to lock up guys like Malkin and Crosby for 10 plus years. What I wouldn't mind seeing is the NHL make a rule stating that only a team who holds a players rights can offer them a Contract of more then 7 years.

But as for the inflation, using weber as an example, even if his 7.8 million contract in 10 years is equal to a contract now of 5 mill, do you really think in 10 years Weber will be equal to a 5 mill defenseman now. Probably not, that is part of the risk that comes with siging someone to a contract like this
