Not everyone is Alfredsson, who is the exception and not the norm when it comes to contracts.
Karlsson's agent will get him the best value. A three-year deal has huge risks for the Sens as well, as Karlsson's agent could ask for $7M+, citing that a lot of players have front-loaded contracts that average around $7M annually in the first few years and he wants a similar arrangement for his client. He could also argue that a three-year deal doesn't give Karlsson any long-term security, so a higher monetary value is required to sign him on a short-term deal.
