I don't exactly see a need for McDonald. Probably if Koivu retires, Getzlaf walks (very unlikely) or if Holland turns out to be not ready for the big show. The Ducks wouldn't have enough depth on the wings to ice 3 scoring lines (Perry, Ryan, Palmieri, Selšnne (if he doesn't retire)). DSP is good, but I'd rather see him together with Koivu and Winnik on a defensive-minded third line. Leaves Beleskey, Bonino and Staubitz for the 4th line.
