The NFL almost had a lockout last year and did a 10 year term. Last NHL term was 7 years and ended up with a lockout. Wouldn't either side want to try and lock in a longer deal so you don't have to deal with this again in just 5 years?
It took what 4 months to realize the last CBA had issues? Locking into a longer deal could end up being a bigger issue then people realize.
