Dahlin Signs his ELC

Recommended Posts

Is that totally predictable, or somewhat interesting?

I seem to recall that there are some wrinkles that can make these ELC's not so cookie cutter.

I was going to note the opposite, sort of ... man, Gilbert is looking old and fat.

And, what the heck took so long?

It may be a sign of my own aging that I thought to myself "Gilbert's looking well!"

Considering Josh Allen still hasn't signed his deal with the Bills, I'm thankful this was put to bed quickly.

Dahlin back in Buffalo again??  I thought he wouldn't be back until training camp.  I guess if it's to sign your first NHL contract to make $925,000 base plus bonus it's worth the flight back across the pond.

His deal was completely cookie cutter.  He got the rookie max & is eligible to earn money for every bonus category that D-men qualify for.

Jason Botterill:  How about $924k and every bonus possible?

Dahlin's agent:  You're a tough negotiator, Jason, but we both know he's worth $925k.

Jason Botterill:  Yeah, you've really got me over a barrel on this one ... OK, deal!

Glad he's been signed. I'd still like to know whether they expect him to play on the left or right hand side? Can anyone tell me which side he played during the prospect camp? Maybe that would give us an indication.

Puts him at 6-3 185, which isn't teeny. He's got some room on his frame, though.

I'm 6'-2".  Some years ago I successfully dieted and got down to about 180 lb.  People thought I had cancer.  185 on a 6'-3" frame *is* teeny. 

I'm sure he'll bulk up.

And yet.. if you look at the BMI matrix...

185 is smack dab in the ideal weight for 6'3.

23.1 in fact.

The real question is how much his mass is bone versus muscle at this point.  My guess, being Scandanavian, is that he has higher bone mass.  So he will put on muscle mass as he begins his workouts.

I was 6'3 185lbs my senior year in high school.

My father is 6'6" and has weighed around 190 most of his life. He's way stronger than me but because he's so tall he doesn't look like much. 

Don't gotta look strong to be strong when you're tall.

True.  Much of your strength comes from leverage.  If he knows how to use it to his advantage he should be fine.

I'm 6 feet but have lost 15 pounds since moving to Oklahoma after being incredibly thin to begin with and probably am dying of something at this point 

The moral of the story is, I hope Rasmus is a lot heavier than I am

Too much anger... you need to relax.

I've actually been very good at keeping my emotions in check since, about, April, for reasons I won't get into detail with here. I had a revelation or two. 

What it is is the IBS 

And the night of the ROR trade doesn't count, that was 99% theatrics

So I see the dark text on the blue background that people have mentioned. What did you use to post this? OS, app, etc.…
