What’s your number on a Dahlin extension?

I do not want to risk another Samson situation due to bridge contracts.

I prefer an 8 x 8 deal to get 2 years UFA (I think he is 21 now).  I would consider a 2 year bridge at 3 per, BUT it has to be the only bridge deal.  Then sign him to tat 8 x 8, or maybe 8.5 - 9 by then at the end of the first year.  That will buy 4 years UFA (I think).

What term and money are you hoping we land on for Dahlin?

Inspired to start this because of the reported number on Nurse:

 

hahahaha omg I hope they give Nurse 9million. 

 

As for Dahlin, either sign him to 8 years or give him 2 years. Idk how much the price would be.

I think my bridge amount is low ... make it 2 years at $4.5 - 5 per year.

If Nurse gets $9M I think that ups the price on Rasmus.

$9M is alot for Nurse.  He has 1 year left at $5.6M.

Bridge deal, $4m for 2 years. His points are nice but he needs to player better at defense, because he’s not a forward.

His overall points weren’t nice at all. Krueger held Dahlin back.  Made him play a game not suited for him.
I agree on the bridge deal.  It’ll probably cost a bit more though.

if you are going short term, then give him what he wants (not fantasy-land, but don't worry about overpaying), simply because you don't need the cap space now.

If you are going long term, go really long term.  Since you are going to have ton of cap room this year (and probably next year), load it up front so it looks really good to him, but it might keep the total value a tad lower so it doesn't hurt the cap as much in later years.

I think you are getting warmer.

I can see Dahlin really wanting a bridge deal.  Both to showcase himself under Granato and to see how things go with Buffalo.

I agree that Sabres should be keeping the need to sign him long term at the forefront of their mind.

Is front loading still possible under the CBA?  I thought it was eliminated after the Ehrhoff (SP?) fiasco and some others.

7x7.

 

This buy just one year of UFA (upon further review I believe it buys three). If you’re going that long just go eight years.

Correct. It spreads the cap hit evenly even if you front load the deal.

Max length of 8 years. I’d live with 7.

 

I’d bank on him getting better and developing in a positive direction.

6 - 6.75 per. 
 

The first 2-3 years would be an overpayment more or less. But the remaining years would be fair for both sides. Keyword fair. Assuming of course he develops well.
