It's like an obese person mandating that supermarkets only permit them to buy 1 "unhealthy" thing a week. If you DON'T want to eat more than that then DON'T eat more than that. If you don't WANT to sign players to terms longer than FIVE years then don't OFFER longer than that.
Owners compete for players. Players have agents playing teams against each other. That drives up contract length.

Ken Holland offered Suter and Parise shorter contracts. He was responsible. Didn't do much good, did it?
