The Philadelphia Flyers have placed defenseman Andrew MacDonald on unconditional waivers for the goal of terminating his contract. The GM's message only helped build the excitement for the former Capital and Penguin who has played 38 career games against the Flyers. He had 25 points in 80 games last season and is signed through 2020-21 at a cap hit of $5.75 million.
He signed a six-year, $30-million pact with the Flyers in 2014.
The 32-year-old MacDonald contributed only nine points in 47 games this past season.
"They have good people, risky players, talented forwards, a young group of D that can really play - they're just young, I think".
"I've been fortunate to be on real good teams", he said.

Winnipeg Jets trade Jacob Trouba to the New York Rangers
Entering the summer, Trouba will be a restricted free agent, and the Rangers will have to negotiate a new contract with him. The Winnipeg Jets have traded defender Jacob Trouba to the New York Rangers , the club announced Monday.
"We feel this move provides us with financial flexibility as we look for additional ways to strengthen our team". Gudas counts $3.35 million against the salary cap. I see myself as a real good support piece for one of these young guys who's really talented, and maybe together we can be a real formidable pair with some good balance of puck moving, defending well, using our legs, adding to the offense, all that good stuff.
It's the first significant move of the National Hockey League offseason after the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup and succeeded the Capitals as reigning champions.
The NHL's first buyout period opened Saturday.
"I'll give Ron Hextall and Chris Pryor (former general manager and assistant general manager) a lot of credit here - we have some top-end young talent on that back end, and I think the goal right now is to try to surround them with the right people and add some talent back there, as well".
The move frees up more cap space for the Capitals, leaving them with a projected $12.481 million with which to work, with eight forwards, six defensemen, and two goaltenders already under contract.
