It's very difficult to say right now, but I think they got low-balled.
Kadri getting an 8 year contract offer?

What idiot would do that?

Crosby, AO, Malkin, Kopitar, ... it is extremely easy to see who'd be competing for long term contracts.

Signing lessor lights to 6 year deals is the problem, not signing a few dozen superstars.

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
