If that takes a little extra money to structure it so it's beneficial to the club, I would do it.
Why in the world would he agree to a three year deal? What motivation is there for him? 8 years would be wonderful, but, highly unlikely for a RFA coming off his ELC. The player does get a vote here and if he wants to go to his first year of UFA status, the other potential option is to let him chase an offer sheet. Arbitration is not an option so its either work with the player on a term he's willing to sign or let the stupidity of offersheet money come into play.
