I would agree that he needs to last the rest of the season (and hopefully playoffs) to really earn a new contract. The better he plays during that time, the more years they could add to the contract.

Example:
Makes it to the end of the year injury free (including playoffs) and keeps up his decent production: 1 year contract.
Makes it to the end of the year injury free (including playoffs) and really tears it up for the rest of the season: 2 year contract.
Makes it to the end of the year injury free (including playoffs) and really tears it up for the rest of the season and is key in the playoffs: 3 year contract.
I'd just stay away from 3 years.

Instead, I'd increase his desire to stay by adding salary rather than adding length.
