I doubt it. It ends almost exactly when you want a high dollar contract to end (ideally it would be ~32-33 years old, but this is still good). I still think we'll see some weird swings in salaries over the next couple of seasons as GMs start reupping all of their star players and squeezing out higher end middle-tier players as a result, but in comparison to other recently signed star contracts (Ducks) this was definitely a good one.
