from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post,
If the Islanders trade Andrew MacDonald, it’s because of money.
A month a half ago, the Islanders defenseman turned down a four-year, $16 million offer, The Post has learned.
MacDonald and his agent had previously asked for a four- or five-year deal at $5 million per, and even got the Islanders to come up from their original starting price of $3.5 million per.
In turning down the offer, the pending unrestricted free agent has left himself as one of the league’s most highly coveted trade pieces, before both Friday’s 3 p.m. Olympic roster freeze and before the March 5 trade deadline.
