THese guys are both decent players, but they are best used as third line players on elite teams.

Some one will give them 4-5 years deals, especially if they want to keep the cap hit reasonably low.

Paying your bottom 6 players $3-4M on long term deals is not the way to continue being an elite team. Being able to replace them with younger and cheaper players is the way to remain an elite team. You just need to ensure you have the prospects to do so. That's where most elite teams fail (like Vancouver, in signing everyone and eventually getting older and too expensive.
