MacDonald signed for $550k because at the time he was hanging on as a call-up 5/6 d-man. The $550k was for a one-way contract. It meant he'd have to go through waivers if the Isles sent him down, and if he cleared he'd still get $550k a year. He developed nicely into a 3-4 defenseman which makes him a steal. The slight danger is that when A-Mac's contract ends, his agent is going to look for stupid money because he got paid dirt in his last contract.
