I really think that AM would be able to cash in as a young top 4 d-man who is just entering his prime. If I was a GM, I'd 10x rather have AM than a guy like Carle, Wideman or Streit, who all make between $4.75-5.5M.

Sadly, I agree with you totally. Although I do think that Hamonic's contract was a discount partially because of the length. That is, he may have compromised on the dollars for extra years.

The reason why this worries me is because I don't see how Snow can justify paying MacDonald more than Hamonic or Vish, when he (arguably) slots beneath those two in team depth.

And, given that he has been horribly underpaid for years, he may be in no mood for bargains.
