Using and deserving is two different things.

McDonald is a fearless shot blocker, decent puck mover but nothing else. They weren't going to get a 1st for that kind of D.

What?

You realize that the Flyers have like $10 million coming off the books in timonen and mez, right?

Yeah, I'm sure Snow called around, got better offers, and decided to go with the Flyers offer anyway.

There was a comment from an opposing GM on Islespointblank, basically pegging AMac's value at around a 2nd and 5th.

I think what they got was about the most they could given AMac's crappy season.

I thought Isles said at least 1st? They didn't even get a high 2nd

That says it all about the Islanders. Amac will be fine and probably a very good fit the the Flyers because he WON'T (...or shouldn't) be asked to play top four minutes.

The Islanders mistake was putting him in a position he was not equipped for. Perfect 5/6 guy 15 minutes a night on a good team.

Good move for Flyers. Fair return for Islanders.

True, it wasn't a first.... but I'd argue that a 2nd in 2015 isn't terribly far off from a 1st in 2014.

Buyers market right now for sure. Weird to see all these low prices today, rather then waiting it out to see if a better offer comes closer to the deadline. I think it's a sign there isn't a lot of bidding wars going on.

A guy eating over 20 minutes a night can't pull in a first anymore?

They were NEVER going to get a 1st for AMac, that guy is friggen HORRIBLE. I said I'd be happy if we got a 3rd round pick for that bum, now I'm thrilled, 2 picks for a rental who is terrible. Love it.

Isles also pick up Matt Mangene in the trade.

It's a fair deal for both.

He's asking for 5 mil per year. He's a solid 3rd pairing dman. And strictly a rental.

He's asked to do much more than that on the isles. And he's been brutal this year. Like his play fell off a cliff.

Time to recoup some of the picks used in this deal for Meszaros.

Not happy with this start.

2015 is really top heavy and does not seem to deep so, I am ok with giving up a mid-late 2nd rounder. Good job Homer. Now we need to get rid of Mez and Grossmann.

Yes, and B. Schenn is an RFA, and they have $58M+ already committed. So I'd say that a 5x5 contract for AMac isn't exactly what they need.
