You have to imagine that Snow will be busy majority of tomorow with the Vanek auction. Probably wanted to get this one out of the way early

It's because he's a bottom pairing defenseman. Don't expect more.

After only a 4th going for Robidas, a 5th going for Weaver, AMac being horrible, replacing the 2015 2nd round we lost to Buffalo for Vanek, and being sent to Philadelphia, this is a good deal for the Islanders.

I thought MacDonald was the worst D available? Enh, for the price I guess I'll take him. Better than selling the team for nothing.

Macdonald is a good player but his minutes gets overrated. On a bad team, everyone plays a lot of minutes by default.

Good players like Hamonic deserve them, others don't. Smart move by NYI.
Fair enough. I like the Islanders and would consider myself a fan, I am just so frustrated that they wont do anything about the goal tending situation.

McDonald is the opposite of a puck-moving defenseman.

Me too but the difference between a 2nd plus a 3rd vs a first isn't that huge. I just figured the lack of good dmen would have driven the price up to a first.

Yikes, that's cheap. I can't believe that it seems like it's a buyers market this year.

Wow. Pretty bad deal for the Islanders. They've been using AMac like a 1st pairing player. You think they could have extracted a 1st from someone.

Looks like buyers really do not want to pay the big prices. This deadline has already seen guys traded for what looks like far less than people expected.

Not shocked at the result, but a little curious that he didn't hold out until tomorrow to see if anyone panicked.

My guess is Philly offering the 2nd in 2015 instead of this year was the clincher.

Yeah I guess the secret is out. Can't say I am disappoint in this return. It is fair, even it's not the first I would have like. Oh well.

Solid move by Snow for another unsignable UFA. However, he needs to find a way to keep these guys around.

There must have been no first to be had. I'm satisfied with the return.
