    As much as it pains me to say, Dahlin is a generational defensemen. 18 and already a #1 D in the league, perhaps already a top 10 D. In 2 or 3 years he is going to be a monster and as a fan of a team in the Atlantic he terrifies me.

    Easily the Calder will be his and he will win many more trophies and sadly.. probably a cup or two.

    There have only been like 7 generational players in history and you think Dahlin will be one?

    Weird time to say it he’s been pretty pedestrian tonight.

    EDIT: Two of these things don't belong (and I like Matthews and the Leafs, btw).

    Disagree he is showing off his poise and iq this game wonderfully. Facing a tough offense he isn’t paniced and makes calm good decisions with the puck. For 18 it’s incredible.

    Considering everyone is watching this game you just told everyone you don’t know how to evaluate a hockey player

    I’ve felt that since the 1st time I watched him play in the NHL. But why would it pain you? I’m not a sabres fan either but an uber elite talent in the league is a good thing. It’s a baffling thought.

    And the Calder his easily? WTF?

    Problem for him there is that the things he’s done best this season don’t generate as much hype.

    If he's normally much better that's pretty darn great for an 18 year old defenseman.

    I like the Leafs and Matthews, but he and Toews have no business near that list.
