I had a major epiphany about a month and a half ago, about his play and about the approach I want taken with him, etc...it was basically your post. Scary.

but I've also leaned more and more heavily towards the "NOBODY....should be given a contract longer than five years" (with a handful of rare exceptions of skill/age combo 6)...drafting well, developing well, and being able to adapt to situations that call for extensions or what have you.

A four year deal would be sweet.

You'll also have a contingent of posters who think that Vanek's style of play (his prolific scoring in the slot, at the crease, in tight spaces) is conducive to a long term extension. Some would argue that he takes a heavy punishment and would be a bit risky.
