Others can absolutely be replaced with better or cheaper players
The problem with signing McDonagh and Stepan to those bargain caphits likely means it'll be a short term deal (2yrs). They're going to get an inevitable raise into the 6mil+ figures after these bridge contracts. I'd prefer if they can look both players 6+ yrs at 4.5-5m per.
