They're current cap hits are 0.85M, 1.625M, and 2.875M respectively.

Expectations change, those three are expected to be key players on the team whether their cap hits are low or not.

In the end, it wouldn't matter what I say if you have a preconceived notion that any hate DD/French Canadian player get is due to them being French. For example, quite a few Bruins fans watch Habs/Bruins games with the preconceived notion that all the Habs players dive. When they see a Habs player fall from contact, it is difficult to convince them it isn't a dive. I'm not going to say that there is zero French hate, just like I can't say Habs never dive. However, it is not really fair to suggest French hate every time a French player is criticized.
But in the end, put lipstick on a pig, and it's still a pig.
