It could go $7mil,$6,$5.5,$4.5,$3 or something like that. His contract would end around the same time as Karlsson, Doughty, Myers, Larsson. I would even go one more year at the same cap hit if it helped get him signed at that.

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 17:44:32 +0000http://hockeytraderumors.com/?p=25618#comment-374725One more thing on a Dion extension. Part of my contract extension offer has to do with Dion’s age…he’s not 24/25 like a Seabrook, Keith or Letang was/is.
Dion will be 29 at end of contract…so a 5 year extension puts him to 34. Does anyone really believe with the way Dion plays, minutes he plays how he already looks gassed at times at 28, that he will be even close too the Dion he is now at 34? I really don’t. Dion is not a smooth skater, he has to work hard, he will slow down for sure. Something like 5 years, $26 mil ($5.2 per) extension should be very fair for both sides given the fact that Dion will not be as effective 6 years from now most likely.
We are probably seeing the best Dion we will ever see from now for a couple years tops.
