Your last point is a good one. Do you really want to piss him off now? What if he gets bitter and holds a grudge? He's going to only then be more likely to bolt the hell out of their when he is a UFA.
or he's going to demand "make up" money as part of his next contract.

i get not wanting to give huge money to every rfa...but i think when the player is going to be one of the cornerstones of your team, you should pay them appropriately.

a benefit to locking up younger players early is you can buy up early UFA years at a discount.
