6 years at what he's arguably worth now is a good deal.
This is the biggest problem I have with the contract, you are assuming that he will continue to improve every year like this and then hand out a 6 year contract. What if he regresses, what if his defense doesn't improve, would you be ok with a 15 goal 40 point guy for 6 years at that salary. A shorter 2-3 year term makes way more sense, it is just taking way to much risk for the player.
