Karlsson because he had 3 years of NHL service time as a 22 year old (played first season as a 19 year old). Of the 7 seasons of RFA control, 3 were gone.

Subban because he was 23 years old, so 4 years away from age 27.

Karlsson signed a 7 year deal that ate up 3 UFA seasons.
Well there it is, 3 UFA years, and Subban will potentially lose 2. Not a huge difference as was pointed out. Subban's situation is much closer to Karlsson than Letang IMO.
