The problem is that he isn't our #1. We can't pay him like a #1. It's great depth to have, but is it fair to expect him to take a paycut AND play on the 2nd pair? Hjalmarsson probably took that paycut because he won 2 cups with the Hawks. We won't be winning any cups with having our top 4 D commanding 20 million+ unless they're a generationally talented group. I'd have no issue with that if our D had any offense that wasn't McDonagh.
