I think McD`s contract is going to be like MDZ (a 2.55m bridge : http://www.capgeek.com/comparables/?...8&year_id=2012), or PK Subban (a 2.875m bridge : http://www.capgeek.com/comparables/?...4&year_id=2012). Unless Sather convinces McD to sign a long term deal like Staal, I can`t see Sather doling out 4 million bucks a year to McDonagh.
McDonagh is arbitration eligible. If Sather offers him a bridge deal, it's almost certainly heading towards an arbitration settlement. Give the guy his money. Even if his offense remains stagnant, he's one of the best two-way defenders in the NHL already. He's worth an extended contract.

$4.5M per might be on the low end at this point.
