Isles Open Up Contract Talks With Andrew MacDonald

According to a report from ESPN, the Islanders have opened preliminary talks with Andrew MacDonald regarding a new contract.

Recently, Arthur Staple from Newsday has compared Andrew MacDonald to the situation defenseman Matt Carle was in 2 years ago.  Carle ended up signing a 6 year 33 million dollar contract with the Lightning.  Staple thinks MacDonald will get 5 years/25 pretty easily and I can't say I disagree.

These are largely for each side to get an idea where the other one is.  If the Islanders fail to get back into contention I would not be surprised to see MacDonald moved at the trading deadline because I don't expect him to return next season.
