Matthews is getting max. The big questions is whether he goes long term, or whether be signs 1-3 years. His contract likely expires a bit too early to take advantage of the exploding cap. If he signs 1-3 years, he can sign again at max for his big 8 year retirement contract. It shouldn't be a problem either way because Arizona will have loads of cap space.
MacKinnon won't get max if he stays with Colorado. 13M x 8 years would age fine for them, but might require a bit of shuffling in the short term.
McDavid should get max. He probably learned his lesson about taking discounts last time around. That taking a discount is pointless because you can't stop your team from potentially signing bad contracts with the extra space.
Makar is another one to watch out for. He is separating himself from the rest of the league in terms of comparables.
