Ryan McDonagh is considering an offer to play in Europe after previously turning down two deals.

"I'm learning more every day and trying to explore options there and certain things with contracts and where I would be and if it's worth it," said McDonagh. "I think the only way I would go is if this keeps stretching longer and longer and the forecast, the light at the end of the tunnel looks dimmer. Because I know how important it is to be in the same game shape, and that's the big thing is once the puck drops here in North America, I want to be ready 100%, ahead of the game and playing the way I play." McDonagh is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer.
