It's still strange. Weber is a simple case, he wanted money, he went for a long term contract (10 year+), before CBA eliminates such contracts (and Philly willing to give him the money). In the current cases (Turris, Hall, Seguin, etc), perhaps it's just players who want security now instead of waiting a few years, and the teams get them cheap.

The contracts given out these days are quite juicy. It's funny that a Norris candidate (Chara) got a 2 year 9.5m total in 2004, when Lidstrom's salary was 10m.
