Think about it.

McDonagh has to be locked up; between 4 and 5 million
Stepan also should skip the bridge contract; he'll earn between 3.8 and 5
Hagelin should get around 2 million
MZA is line up for 1.5 - 2

So if this very reasonable estimation is any base, the RFA's will cost between 11 and 14 million.

Speculation of course, but these players have earned those contracts and i'd be quite surprised to expect any cap space after their signings baring any inevitable roster moves.
Most expected del Zotto to get more as well.. Steps played as a 1c for a half season, before that was his production worth anything close to 5m on a RFA contract? We will see if Slats is willing to give McD more than Staal
