Hornqvist Contract..2 years or 5?

The Predators are in a tough spot with this one.  I really don't know why we have not seen a contract yet for Hornqvist.  But I understand the gamble they are taking.  If they go 2 years at say 2.75mil and Hornqvist, and he keeps scoring 30 goals a year, its very likely we will loose him on his next contract.  If they go 5 years starting at 3mil and escalating to say 5mil with a no trade clause and he doesn't produce I can see them getting stuck with another Legwand like contract.  I hope they can make a mid-length deal with Patrick, say 3 years at 3mil with incentives that would allow him to boost his income as it helps the team and then a a 2 year, club option, for around 4 or 5mil to insure we do not loose him.
