I agree with whomever it was above that implied that Murray may be more likely to give contracts greater than 5 years now that the maximum is 8. It may be easier to take a hard line on contract length when you know the player could literally ask for
amount of years than when he's limited to only 8. Instead of a matter of principle it becomes simply tactical.
And even if not, Murray's hard line may have been directed at second contracts (the ones immediately after ELCs) than contracts generally, a sort of philosophical objection to giving relatively unproven players the keys to the vault.
Of course I have no idea, I just like those theories because it helps drive my wishful thinking that Murray will sign these two to the contracts they each want.
