Maybe Bergevin can give in with 5 years and 5.5-5.7 AAV.
They're all fairly rich contracts for highly touted forwards, however I believe the point that Meehan was making was that it's not abnormal for high quality players to sign long term (and consequently for a higher salary) coming out of their ELC, whereas 10 years ago it was almost unheard of.
