He will get closer to $7-$7.5 than $6.5 though, and he deserves it. There will be inlfation of salaries over time, and we can't frond-load contracts like we have in the past to bring cap hits down (like we did with Crosby, or like Buffalo did with Myers), so expect it closer to that range.
Karlsson got 6.5 for 7. Im not saying he's better than Letang, but he does have a better offensive game and a Norris to his name. That will be a good bargaining chip for Shero. I'd expect around that same coin.
