I'm thinking more like 3-3.5/ea for all three of our RFA's which brings us close to 11 million without even considering Sauer and a couple of UFA's we're going to lose.
and most thought anything under 4 million for PK was a pipe dream.
Most people though MDZ would get more than 3.5 himself. 2.55 per for 2 years.
Sather has been one of the better GM's at getting guys to commit to bridge contracts. I see no reason that would be any different for Hags and Stepan
2.5 per for both Step and Hags.
McD probably gets a long term deal in the 4 million range.
