We saw the same thing with Streit as well when people were complaining about that signing. I have also said I don't think it's the players up in New York, they have the worst coach in the NHL. That paired with the one of the worst GA this year also doesn't help MacDonalds case. He was being misused big time there.

I agree with this. One of the major knocks on MacDonald is his corsi numbers and some people put too much stock into any stat. His biggest weakness is neutral zone and his entries. There is where the problem lies, something I believe with different coaching can help.
