McDonagh may get more expensive than we'd anticipated. Try to get him and Stepan signed to 8 year deals below $6M. If we go for bridge deals, that severely limits our window of competitiveness since we will have to make a few tough decisions in 2-3 years otherwise.
McDonagh is arbitration eligible. No bridge deals for him. Josi got $28M for 7. Voynov got $25M for 6. Both of them weren't eligible for salary arbitration. They signed their ELCs between 18-20 and need 4 years. McDonagh signed at 21 and needs 3 years. He has all of the leverage. Stepan needs another year for salary arbitration.
