if Kari played for a bigger market or in front of a blueline which could actually defend, nobody would've been surprised about the money or lenght. Kari has been among the most important players, if not the most important player for the Stars since arriving. His injury problems are of no issue during his time in Dallas, and his consistency and stats have been stellar, especially considering the plethora of incapable defenders in front of him (a non playoff team). I don't see why the team he is playing for, would pay him anything less than he is receiving with this contract.
