I'd go with 7 years like the NFL does.
How do limited contracts benefit the players? Thats an insane thing to say.

Its about security for them.

Ive taken the owners side on a lot of issues, but not this one. They need to deal with the year to year variance issues far more than capping a term on contract lengths. Thats like going to the dentist for a cleaning and coming out with a root canal.
