So yeah, I won't be surprised if he asks more.
Karrlson got the contract after his rookie and was 4 years away from UFA. PK is on his 2nd contract and 2 years away from UFA (once contract expires). The more UFA years you want from a player the more expensive it will get.

I think Letang is up for contract extension this summer as well, PK and Letang will probably get contract very similar to each other and really he should the comparable at this point.
