I was watching part of the Flames game tonight and I was wondering where D-mac was?! I see he's only played 31 games so far and has no points at all! I feel bad for the guy. Has he been benched? Anyone know what's going on? I know he hurt his hip in December but is he STILL out from that?

He had sports hernia surgery, maybe the end of January or start of February, so he's out for a while now.

Yep - he's still out. He had surgery on his hip and was going to be out another 6-8 weeks from then.

Oh I didn't know it was that bad!

Hopefully when he comes back he'll be ready to go and will do great in the post season. Gotta love D-Mac.

Do we really need him back though? Sure he was a great player for this hockey club, but I think it’s time we moved on. Injuries have taken their toll and he’s clearly past his best. He averages 5:24 of TOI, is pointless and is out injured.

And still, many on this board would rather have him than Fedorov, Drake, or Lapointe.

Mac was a awesome player and still is a great great personality, on and off the ice.

However, it seems he lost his edge over the last 2 years.
It's just Mac as we know him..

I went to buy some camouflage pants the other day but I couldn't find any.

On the brightside at least he's having alot of time for his face to recover after all the beatings he's taken this year hehe.gif
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

I hope not.

I loved DMac when he was here, but he's just not that same player anymore.

Chronic back problems, now add to that chronic groin problems.

We can't bring back everyone former Red Wings player for a reunion tour just because the fans love them. At least not if we want to win a Cup.

tick tock, is the sound of a clock. Time waits for no man. Especially professional athletes who's better days are past. No to D-Mac, Feds, LaPointe, Drake, Gordie Howe, Sid Abel, Alex Delvecchio, etc.

I have great memories of all of these players. Don't ruin my memories by bringing them back.
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

Never gonna happen. He's another Maltby--too old to check, fight, or score.

I know that there are people here who are absorbed by nostalgia. Those who want McCarty back--a McCarty who can no longer play at a worthwhile level--because he has a history with the Wings are the same people who want to pay $6m for a mediocre Fedorov for the same reason. Sorry--want to win or want to ride the nostalgia train?

The funny part? Inside of 5 games, when those people saw how little the two aforementioned players can do now, they'd be bitching left and right about them.

Ironic how so many people want to crucify Holland for bringing back old Wings but then suggest bringing back McCarty.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.
