I'd be shocked if he got him to take under 3.5, I know Snow has been good with contracts but MacDonald's an UFA unlike most of the guys Snow has signed to cheap, long term contracts. I'm going to guess at a 5 year deal at 3.5 - 4.25, he'd be in his early 30s when that deal expires so could have another shot at earning a decent contract when that deal runs out.

I don't see anyone shifting him out of the Isles top 4 within the next two years, I can't think of many teams he'd be on the bottom pairing.
