How so?

Seems a little apple:orange as a direct comparitor. Isn't this Josi's second big contract?

One of the very best D in the league signed for under $10/yr.  Pretty sure that's the biggest annual cap hit for a D-man.  That keeps $9/yr for Dahlin quite realistic (if not a tad high).

Yeah. I read Josi at $9M as good for the Sabres with Dahlin, if anything.

With the way Dahlin’s been playing of late, I find myself thinking less of the contract he will command.

idk if it will happen but I could see the Leafs being the team that fades down the stretch. I am sure I will be wrong but I think there's a chance.

Especially when the cap-hit estimates for Dahlin flung around this board over the summer were as high as $12mil if memory serves.

Well, you all are either considerably more pessimistic than I am regarding Dahlin's development, or more optimistic regarding what he will command as a salary.

A $9 million dollar defenseman better damn-well be good!  We're not talking Scandella level here.

Not counting the shortened lockout year, there's been, what, maybe 1 year they DIDN'T fade down the stretch this decade?  The Loafs failing in the spring is like maple leaves falling in the fall.  It's only noticeable when it doesn't happen. 😉

I’ve felt for some time that Dahlin will sign a deal that matches Eichel’s.  It just feels right.  Enough to acknowledge the player he is and his vast potential, while at the same time not “showing up” the team captain.  Just a gut feeling.

Dahlin will be a Norris nominee in 3 years.    8 years 10 million is my guess

Rangers up 2-1 on TB with 5 min to go.  Rangers are playing their #2 goalie.
