I don't understand...

Usually...
shorter term=more money
longer term=less money

But for us, if we want to go long term, we'll be eating UFA years so we have to pay up? and if we want to go short term, we'll have to also pay up?

If short term is more money per year in this case, then wouldn't it make sense to sign him long term to save on the cap hit? It would be extremely stupid of us to sign him to an expensive short term deal, only to pay him a lot more on his next contract. That way we aren't saving anywhere.

I hope if he signs for an expensive 3 year deal, it means he's going to go easy on us on his next contract. If not, then i don't see the point of this.
