There won't be any more suter contracts. Cap hits will stay the same for players, but there won't be any more 12 mil years.

And I still expect the same thing with McDonagh as with Staal. Sure, each RFA year might be ~4 mil (was about 3.5 with Staal) and the 1 usual UFA year we get might be ~6 mil instead of 5.5ish, but his cap hit won't go above 4.5 in my opinion.
