Do they sign bottom 6 guys now for 3-4 years?
If you are referring to a young, valuable bottom 6 guy, I don't see why not.
If I give Gaborik a 5 year deal, what's preventing me from giving Boyle a 3-4 year deal if the price is right?
You see backups in the NBA and NFL getting multi-year deals so your argument doesn't seem to hold up.
