Groan, not this again.
Last season, Dion was:
12th in d-man scoring
9th in d-man goals
10th in d-man icetime
7th in d-man PMs
4th in d-man PPGs
Shea Weber scores 49P and he is a god worth $7.85M/yr. Dion Phaneuf socres 44P, and he is a goat at $6.5M/yr.
Let's look at comparables:
Erik Karlsson - $6.5M. Same cap hit, except Karlsson's deal is RFA. He'll be asking for more than Weber as a UFA.
Dan Boyle - $6.6M. No thanks, would rather have Phaneuf.
Kimo Timonen - $6.3M. No thanks, would rather have Phaneuf.
Brian Campbell - $7.142M. No thanks, would rather have Phaneuf.
Dion Phaneuf is a top-10 defenceman in the NHL, and doesn't appear to be over- or under-paid.
