Offering Heatley and/or Bouchard was just insulting, though. C'mon, man.

I know it depends on the CBA, but what do you all think McDonagh would be worth on the open market right now, considering he's really young, highly effective, and still getting better? I think he could see a pretty ridiculous long-term payday if there were no cap. That's just speculation fueled by the Suter comparison...A team is going to have to keep this in mind while acquiring/signing players with contracts that bump over his UFA year.
If Drew Doughty can get $7M, I see no reason that McD wouldn't get easily $5.5-6, with an offer of $6.5 from a desperate team
