33 yrs John Erskine 16:54, 1 point, -4

28 yrs Diaz 20:58, 7 points, +3

It doesn't tell us everything, but I think it's clear that Diaz is in a class above these guys and should get 2.75-3.5, somewhere in that range. I'd love it a 3M per, but wouldn't fret with 3.25.

Off the top of my head, since Bergy got here, these are the Dmen that he has signed: Drewiske, Bouillon, Murray and Emelin.
Expensive? Not really
Mediocre? If Murray, Bouillon, Drewiske is your 6-7-8, as it should be, I think that's pretty good.
Soft? Heck no! He's clearly addressing the size and toughness issues as we go here.
Also, a lot of the guys listed like Hainsey and Leopold signed last summer when teams were in a big cap crunch. As contracts expire and the cap goes up you won't get many of those bargain basement signings. Usually a guy like Hainsey would have gotten 2-3 years at 3-4 mil as a UFA.
