So he signs his extension, it'll be for the max 6 years (that's the new max, right), so best case scenario is in 6 years when he's playing on his expiring deal.

It's fair to say that no one knows what happens between now and then but a reasonable person would look at this as an extremely unlikely thing to happen and not waste any more time thinking on it.
I may be wrong but I thought the max was 7 years to sign with a different team as a UFA and 8 years with your current team.
