Roman Josiís Extension: Bargain of a Benchmark (THW)

Roman Josiís 7 year, 28 million dollar extension has been a guiding light for every GM this summer with a good young defenseman to re-sign, and Ė despite the slew of restricted free agents culled from the market since Ė has remained one of the best contracts under the new CBA. For starters, the extension is such a wickedly smart deal because Josi already fills the role heís being paid for. Even if the 23 year old Swiss defensemanís development doesnít take a single step forward in the next seven years, the kid is already a top pairing blueliner Ė one Shea Weber plays better with than without Ė capable of logging upwards of 20 minutes a night and facing off against opposing top lines.

Hello all. This week, I took a look at how Roman Josi's extension defined the summer's RFA defenseman market, and how excellent a deal it was given the rest of Nashville's salary structure.

As always, any and all feedback is appreciated, from compliments to tearing apart typos that somehow made it through to publishing.
