Seven years at a cap hit of $6.5M is comparable to what you give to guys like Lidstrom, Chara... The Rangers have a $6.5M defenseman playing in the minors. Not saying that he will be like Redden, but I find it to be early and risky to give him that length of contract at that amount. Again though, I could be wrong, but time will tell.
Why would you bring up Redden? At one point you're saying Karlsson is too young but Redden was sign at 31 years old. Was Redden too old to sign a contract?
Even if Karlsson goes on a slump and average 60pts, he will top the NHL scoring for defenseman for the next five years.
Gomez' contract must give you an horrible after taste in your mouth....
