Sweet Jesus :tearsofjoy</div></div>

McDonagh or J.T. Miller signed for 3x$1.5m would have cost more than two late 1sts.

Admittedly, I didn't know who Hagel was at first and I saw this return and thought JBB was out of his mind, but looking at the contract, Hagel's age, and the way he plays, I completely understand. He doesn't expect Palat to take like the 80% discount he would need to stay in Tampa, and we don't have a prospect who is primed to replace him immediately, so if we don't want our window to shut a little more, then we just needed to get one and we needed it now. I'm stunned that he couldn't negotiate it further down, but I'm confident that he tried, Chicago wasn't budging because they didn't have to, and then ultimately did what he had to do and it's certainly better than leaving the table. This deal covers until the end of the Stamkos deal and the 2nd last year of the Hedman deal. Both deals end when the players are 34. So I think even though they're both on discounted contracts right now, if they want to stay in Tampa, that number is going down, not up. The cap will also start increasing again by then. So all that gives us the flexibility to re-sign Hagel and maybe get some UFAs to fill our holes and go for a couple of last runs before Point/Kucherov/Vasilevskiy age out too. If we don't do this deal, we would be left with some gaping holes and by the time the draft picks developed to fill those holes—if they did at all—we'd be right around the end of Stamkos/Hedman's deals when we might not be as desperate for the cheap contracts. We got someone we really needed to push us through the flat-cap era and by the time the losses come back to bite, we'll be in a position to fix that, with maybe some more Cups too. It's a win-win.
