They have to start having at least one regular d-man, preferably two, on entry-level contracts. How many teams have their bottom defense pairing making $7m per year?
That being said, some people here really need to learn player valuation. $5m is not a #1 d-man salary. Weber is a d-man who hit free agency and the AAV of his contract is over $7.5m. Chara's is $7m. Doughty is $7m. Karlsson is $6.5m.
This is pretty much market value or maybe slightly above market for a good 2nd pairing d-man. And no he's not a #4; how many teams have a #4 as good as McDonald? Very few.
