The 20 to 27 may be a bit better as the player is more mature, closer to his peak.

Signing him now changed nothing, it changes once he accrues the season (40 games on the roster)
The advantage to signing him now is that they would have the ability to slide his contract for two years if necessary. If they waited until after he turned 19 this winter they would only have the ability to slide the contract this year. I don't think that would be an issue for them, but that would be the advantage.
