The Islanders are in a situation where they need to take the next step. I view Macdonald as a future top 4 defenseman (obviously), with an outside chance at becoming a top pairing defenseman. Most likely a comfortable number 3 for years to come.

Could he land the Islanders a scorer? Could they make it work if he was the center of a package from Long Island?

Thoughts.
Trading MacDonald makes no sense. All the things you said about him in the first paragraph are the reasons why he will NOT be traded.
