    Next year we can look how Dahlin is looking and compare to this year finish flash. Sure both are rookies but he is one year older. it will in the end look like risto being compared to EK like he did after his first Season. Where is risto now? ha ha ha. Go to sleep, at the end of the day heisk would be honored to open the door for dahlin.

    If you know anything about life you will know different people have different expectations.

    Do we need to list all the All-Star defensemen we were told he was better than before ever playing a game?

    Awesome player who could not possibly live up to the hype that this stupid "generational" tag placed on him. A tag no one has lived up to since Crosby.

    If he continues to develop like he's done so far, "Kidstrom" could actually become a dope nickname for Dahlin. You heard it here first, folks! :nod:

    I’d like to see a list from a credible poster that shows Dahlin as walking into the league as a Norris Candidate. Most reasonable people expected growing pains and that we would be a solid, if unspectacular, contributor. He’s been better than that. It’s damn near impossible to be more than that as a teenager on the blueline.

    He's a pretty special player, it's easy to see. He play as an 18 year old d-man in this league is something that is rare. he will get calder consideration and rightly so.

    I've watched 9 games of the sabres this year living in the west, in 3 of them he was quite something and it was hard to believe he was 18, in 3 of them he was really bad defensively and hurt his team quite a bit and it was clear he still had a lot to learn on the defensive side of things which no doubt he will clear up in the coming years, in the other 3 he was average, not overly good or bad just average.

    2nd best rookie along with Brady from what I've watched this year, Petterson has been the most impressive to me from all the games I have seen, his play has been a level above. As long as injuries don't derail him it is easy to see he is going to be in the contention for Art Ross Trophies for the next decade.

    Hard to list zero people....only thing people said was that he was better at a young age than them.

    I am truly amazed.






    We are 3 pages into a Dahlin thread and there has only been one mention of Heiskanen (well, 2 now... lol).

    I'm really looking forward to next season. Think he can hit 70 points.

    He's promising but he's not as good right now as Dahlin is.

    McDavid was injured for much of his rookie year, if I recall. If healthy, he probably would've beaten Panarin for it.

    Phenomenal instincts. I’m gonna say multiple Norris’s. Contending as early as 2019/2020.

    Floor - Bourque

    (and if there is one,)
    Ceiling - Orr

    Was Ekblad going up against Pettersson and the year he's having?
