I wonder what people would have preferred. The habs sign Pacioretty for two more years after this season. Then at 25, you sign him long term (6 years) so that you can keep him longer before he reaches UFA.

Right now Pacioretty will be UFA at 30, where he will probably have some good years left. The other way, you'd get him for an extra two years.

The downside I guess is that if Pacioretty explodes in the next two years on a shorter contract, that his next one will be more expensive.
