Anecdotal evidence is always the best evidence!

Here are defensemen with similar cap hits and contract lengths, per CapGeek:

Niklas Kronwall
Jason Garrison
Alex Edler
Marc-Edouard Vlasic
Jack Johnson
Zack Bogosian
Dustin Byfuglien

All of these guys range from, at best, on par with McDonagh, to, at worst, tangibly inferior. McDonagh's deal is perfectly fine right now and will look silly in 3 years when the Salary Cap is up by $10 million and he's an even better player.
