It will come down to the quality of the player attached to said contract. Not too different than what it is now. A large contract on a marginal player is harder to justify than one that is on a high end player. For example, is Rick Nash on a 6.7m per contract in a 60m cap good or bad? If cap is the major factor, and not term, would his contract not be shunned (11% of the cap)? But I suspect NYR still makes that deal. So really, it's down to the player, and everything else is academic.

Then there are the other CBA factors like the ability to eat money in deals, as well as the current buyouts, that will have their say.
