By saying that you're making the assumption that money is the only reason Karlsson hasn't re-signed here yet, let's be honest do you really think "bonuses" are the only reason this deal isn't done? I'm going to make an assumption myself that Karlsson simply doesn't want to be here unless the contract is just too good to give up which will never happen with Melnyk.

How similar? Was there a specific amount?
