Suter contract not so bad

From Dirk Hoag at On the Forecheck:

Speaking of Suter, 4 years at $3.5 million per might seem on the high side, but
take a look at this list of
NHL defensemen making between $3 million and $4 million next year, courtesy of While Suter certainly still has rough parts of his game that need to be filled out (as in, quit hanging onto the puck for so long in your own end!), he fits quite comfortably in that group. He’s a legit Top-4 NHL defenseman, and contributes on the power play as well.

Hoag is exactly right. Usually when you see the $3-4 million price range you shake your head and say, “he isn’t worth that.” But the fact is, compared to other players at his position and his age, that is probably right around market value for a player of Suter’s talent.
