And its so funny I was just thinking that while typing my last post about the Gomez situation! I think Mcdonaugh-Staal would work and if McIllrath is as "real deal" as people say, we might not even have to go and get a D-man.
The market has definitely changed since he signed that contract, I see him getting around 7 like Joe Thornton did. The concussion definitely curbs the inflation a bit too.

Either way, 7 years is too long in my opinion, if we can lock him up for 5 great, anything beyond that we need to step away.
