Those injuries and big NHL minutes could mean hes the more talented version of Martinek.(meaning hell play well, but will end up playing 40ish games a year)

as far as AMacs deal goes...id offer him 25 over 6 years and work from there. anything more than 27 over 6 is overpayment.
No way I would commit that type of term to Macdonald. He's a nice player and a good team guy but he is not anywhere close to the type of player that should be signed for 6 years. Just look at the Liles and Komisarek deals, things got real hairy real fast with those 2, I don't want that to be us.

IMO the guy is playing over his head and does not warrant the type of deal a legit #2dman would normally command.
At best I see him as a solid #4 on a real good team.
