Buffalo Sabres: Making the case for a Samuelsson-Power pairing

Mattias Samuelsson and Rasmus Dahlin were by far the best defensive pairing on the Buffalo Sabres, but that should change in 2023-24.

Rasmus Dahlin is coming off the best season from a Buffalo Sabres defenseman in recent memory, and he has one of the NHL’s best two-way games. Last year, Dahlin put up 73 points in 78 contests, and defensively, he logged triple digit blocks for the first time with 132, plus 105 hits.

Dahlin also averaged over 24 minutes of ice time for the second season running, and he nearly hit the 26-minute mark.
