    GMBM sure loves his four year deals. Let's hope this one pays more immediate dividends than his last few have.


    Was kinda hoping they'd take this opportunity to get an upgrade at LD, but with Kempny now confirmed gimp, I get settling on a reliable type that they have some familiarity with.

    I am adequately whelmed. This is a boring signing, Dillon has always felt like he could go either way. So... sure, why not.

    I think Dillon will look better once he’s able to establish a normal routine with the team. Still concerned about the lack of speed if he’s Carlson’s partner but he’s solid. Fair deal, I think.

    I wasn’t a big Dillon fan, but he’s not terrible. He’s truly a defensive Defenseman and with Kempny losing form and now out for the season, no problem with this signing for our Top 4

    I’m gonna get real tired of all those penalties though, that’s gotta stop!

    He’s a great teammate (ex teammates have said amazing things about him), and that’s important in caps locker room.

    Very happy with the signing

    So with Kempny toast, the top four looks like JC, Dilly, Orly and.. Jensen? Siegs and Fever at 5/6?

    Not much depth behind that list it seems.

    I would imagine the Kempny news landed with BMac before he wrote this check, but can anyone confirm the timing?

    Fine with this. I think he will thrive under Lavi.

    I said 4x4 is the most I would be willing to sign him for. With Kempny being most likely out on LTIR for whole season this signing makes more sense. What we do the rest of offseason also influences how I will view this deal, so far I think it is okayish, but if signing Dillon is our biggest offseason move then I will probably be a little bit disappointed.

    Like it a lot. Our scheme was shit last year. In Lavi, I trust. And we've moved Kempny money to LTIR. Poor guy was never the same and is possibly done.

    Never lukewarm....always a hot take with you huh?! ;)

    $250k-500k a year too much maybe....but I think he plays better next season when acclimated.

    But which of them would you re-sign - and for what $/term - when they hit free agency?

    Question now is do we use our remaining cap room on a top 4 RHD or a third line winger? I would love to get Dylan DeMelo in here on the right side and slide Jensen down the third line with Siegs/Fehervary. Think that D lineup would do wonders for Samsonov.

    Totally. But Mac has shown he can be ruthless when called for.

    What's your take on Backstrom? That he's overpaid by 2m? I agree.

    You are not alone brother. We are few to be brave and smart enough here to say that Backstrom is overpaid, Dillon got ridiculous numbers and LuJo was a bust.
