McCarty is a dinosaur now. I do remember him getting into a few fights early in the season, but those were only minor Brad Norton caliber fights. Considering his apparent injury problems, we'd have better luck with Eric Daze playing a full season over McCarty.

You gotta hand it to Holland for buying out McCarty when he did. Mac will always be one of my All-Time Favorite Wings, I wanted to keep him because of centimental reasons, but buying him out after the lockout, no question, was the right thing to do.

Buying out McCarty was the right move, however, not replacing him was the wrong move.
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...)

Even though Mac was my second favorite Wing (behind Stevie Y), this statement is dead on. Holland did the absolute right thing in buying him out.

Sidenote: That's why my screen name is "Never Forget Mac #25" rather than "Bring Back Mac #25".

I love you Mac, but I want to remember you as the Red Wing that you were. Godspeed, and here's hoping you can get back on track and start playing healthy again.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

He will always be my favorite player of the last 10 years but I don't think bringing him back would be a good idea.

It would be nice to have someone around that would back up our other players though, which is one reason why I'm riding the fence of supporting us getting Bertuzzi over Forsberg.
