Comp picks given out by the league are determined by the difference between the value of all the players lost and the value of all the players gained. It is not based on contract signed  that's for RFAs.
Every FA in the league is given a numerical value based upon previous performance and some other things. If a team losses more value than gained, it is awarded a compensation pick relative to the amount of value lost. If a team gains more value than lost, then no compensation is awarded.
For example:
1.) If after this season Potvin is rated a 50 (I don't know what the actual values look like but am using 50 as an arbitrary number), Klatt is rated a 30 and Luc is rated a 10, then the Kings lost 10 points in value and will receive a comp pick for whatever 10 points will get you.
2.) If Potvin is rated a 50, Klatt is rated a 40, and Luc is rated a 40, then the Kings gained 30 points of value and will not receive compensation.
