I love McDonagh but the guy has played 140 games in his career and he's ions behind the others offensively.

Kronwall? You have got to be be kidding about him; he hits like a mack truck, plays sound positional defense and is terrific offensively!
No way I take Seabrook over McDonagh.

I think you're underrating him here. He's been a top ten ES scorer for two years in a row now for D. Give him 6-7 (even BS if he's bad at it) points from consistent PP time and suddenly he's a 40 point guy.
