Yeah its kind of the opposite of normal thinking. Often in sports people would give up some money for a long term commitment, but the current situation in hockey is that you get more money to sell a few years of UFA years. I do think the organization has put themselves in an odd position by hyping up Benn as a franchise player before he has established himself in that role.
