They're hesitant because they have a lot of young players that will be coming up for new contracts in the next few years and they're trying to avoid a contract that will be used as the baseline in those negotiations.

They fought tooth and nail to keep Duchene to a bridge contract after his ELC expired. They're doing the same with ROR. They'll do the same with Landeskog.

Duchene and Landeskog will be up again next summer along with McGinn and Varlamov. They've recognized that they need to be very careful in their early contracts because deal can, and will be, used as precedence.
