Yeah I don't think there's a whole lot of leverage here for the Rangers when it comes to McDonagh. Yeah he didn't have spectacular offensive numbers, but he was 7th in the NHL in even-strength points among defenders last year, and was tied for 5th this year. Add even mild PP production to those and he's likely top-15 in defensive scoring each year, all while providing elite defense.

The lack of scoring is more of a function of Tortorella not using him on the PP than it is of McDonagh's abilities. Anything under $4.5M is going to look like a bargain for this guy in a matter of months, IMO.
