MacDonald had surgery on his back over the offseason and has been out for a while with another back injury this season...He has been a late bloomer and is developing more than just a one time thing with the back issues. A bad back isn't good fr life or for goaltending. Does anybody else think that maybe MacDonald should cut his loses and retire before he can barely walk?
I know that it is kinda rough...but he has to know that Liv is on his way over, Howard is the future, MacIntyre isn't that bad and Manny and/or Ozzie will be back next year, and with a bad back it will be hard to find a job elsewhere.
I think that back issues may prematurly end the career of Joey MacDonald.
I could be wrong and this could be mild, but Redwings central says:
With the playoffs right around the corner, Howardâ€™s strong play has reduced the blow of losing starter Joey MacDonald to a back injury.
I hope he can stay but I wouldnt want the guy to jeopardize his own health to stay in the game
