Of the entire UFA list there is probably only a handful of players that any sensible gm would give more than 3 years to.
Look at some of the contracts from last summer

Hatcher-4 years/$14 million
Rathje-5 years/$17.5 million
Foote-3 years/$13.8 million
Aucoin-4 years/$16 million
Holik-3 years/$12.75 million
Glen Murray-4 years/$16.6 million
Demetria-3 years/$13.5 million
Zhitnik-4 years/$14 million
Scatchard-4 years/$8.4 million
Gonchar-5 years/$25 million
Naslund-3 years/$18 million
Kovalev-4 years/$18 million
Satan-3 years/$12.75 million
Modano-5 years/$17.5 million
Lapointe-3 years/$7.2 million
Rafalski-2 years/$8.4 million
Malakhov-2 years/$7.2 million
Mogilny-2 years/$7 million
McGillis-2 years/$4.4 million
Tverdovsky-3 years/$7.5 million
Zhamnov-3 years/$12 million
Khabibulin-4 years/$27 million
Palffy-3 years/$13.5 million
Whitney-2 years/$3 million-good deal
Hamrlik-2 years/$7 million
Stillman-3 years/$5.25 million

How many of those players were worth the money?Less than 1/2?
