To be fair, a guy like Niklas Hjalmarsson did get offersheeted on a 4 year, 3.5 mil deal. Although Hjalmarsson was coming off a Cup win on a cap strapped team and was thought to have some more untapped offensive upside to his game. Also he just turned 23 years old(coming off a 17 point season/Cup) and Alzner will be 25 in a couple months and coming off an 5 point season(in 48 games) season.
