I think he wants a long term deal in the sense of a 4 year deal, not the new type of long term deals that are 8+ years.

If he gets a 4 year contract, he would be able to be a UFA at that point, and even if he plans to re-sign with the Habs at that point, they need to pretty much overpay to keep him if it gets to that point.
