Agreed, but defenceman like Phaneuf don't either. He has the tools to be a #1 defenceman (IMO he is, but that's a whole different argument).
You can't compare Dion to guys like Karlsson, Campbell(hideous contract), or Mike Green. Totally different players. Dion is an all-around defenceman, he's the triggerman on the number one PP unit, plays more PK time than any defenceman on our team, plays well over 20 mins a night(usually 25+) against the opponent's top guys, and not to mention has a very good physical game as well. Do any of those guys do all that? No. Karlsson has 0 defensive game, same with Green. Campbell is an acceptable defender given his offensive contributions, but Phaneuf is a lot better, not to mention Campbell doesn't have the physical game Dion does(yes I know, he clobbered Umberger blah blah that was how many years ago now?).
6-7M per, depending on the years.
