So by adding a clause that allows X contracts longer than the minimum, all you've done is made the 5 yr rule meaningless as most players do not get contracts longer than that.
Sorry, but it doesn't solve anything from the NHL's point of view.
With so few contracts as outliers, why do you think the NHL cares?
They're willing to accept up to 7 yrs, and the PA wants 8.
The NHL seems to nullify its own requirements/needs if its for the 'home' team.
