Barring injury, there's no reason he shouldn't continue to improve AND mature over the next few years...hell, he's not even reached his prime age.

Do you want to have to re-sign this guy when he's entering his prime? Or would you rather have him signed at 4.5M or 5M DURING his prime?
I'm not concerned about paying PK more if he becomes one of the best D in the league and gets nominated for the Norris. I would have no problem giving him Webber money for 10 years if he does. It's not about getting a cheap deal. It's about paying a player according to his current worth, not what he is projected to be worth. That's why I favor a short, 2-3 year contract of about 4 million a year.
