I guess this means I'll have to dig my McCarty jersey out of the closet and brush it up.

Can you imagine him and Downey out together? A resurrection of the Bruise Brothers, perhaps?

Steve McCarthy plays for Atlanta. He's not retired.

This does my poor heart good, it does. Mac's back! As Draper said, never count this guy out, when he's going to do something, you can count on him. Today would be good, as far as I am concerned, but I think Tuesday (Wings n Hawks) is more likely.




PS - Sandy McCarthy is retired, I think. But Darren McCarty isn't. hehe.gif

According to Red Wings Corner:

QUOTE
Darren McCarty has his own locker stall. His rib injury, however, kept him out of practice today (Saturday) and won't allow him to be in the lineup Sunday.


Sorry guys, no D-Mac today. I'm bummed too.

Is that a new picture of Draper, Malts and McCarty? If so, I'm getting pumped for McCarty's return. He must be ecstatic to be back "home".

freep article today

it's from an article in the Free Press today, and property title on the pic says 03092008. That's today. But perhaps the photogrpaher re-dated it?

I think it is current, myself (i.e., new picture), but who cares, really? smile.gif

On FSN today, Ken Daniels said McCarty was a week away now. So I take it he wont be able to go against Dallas this week. I guess next Saturday vs Nashville or Sunday in Columbus? Has anything been verified yet?

I am looking forward to seeing D Mac re united with the Grind Line. I wonder if Pronger is looking forward to possibily running into Mac in the playoffs.

Drake has more value to our team then McCarty does, i can tell u that right now.

Seems like everybody on this boards wants to give McCarty a BJ. He's coming back for the money, not for the love of the game! Although i can't blame him lmao


What value does Drake offer that you are speaking of? Is it all 3 goals in 55 games? Perhaps it's the whopping 2 assists he's tallied. Maybe it's the staggering 37 PIM. Or maybe it's his unmatchable -7. I see what you mean, Dallas Drake is essential to this team, replacing him would be a mistake of epic proportions.

And as a side note, to say that Mac is only doing this for the money is kind of silly don't you think? I mean, would you do your job for free? Of course not. Mac loves the game and wants nothing more than to be a part of it again, but he does have a family you know. He wants to make money just like everybody else. He's not going to play for free. Unless you think he should also get a side job at a McDonalds or something. Keep in mind, this is his career. I'm a Web developer, if I were to lose my job where I currently am I would not look for a job doing something else, I would look for a job in Web Development, it's my career. I need to make money too. I love what I do, but that is just a bonus, of course getting a job is about the money.

So to say he is doing it for the money is ridiculous. You can't chastise a guy for wanting to get a job, and make money in his career field. Unless of course it would make you happier, and convince you more that he deserves a shot, if he is willing to starve and play for free just to prove to you that he loves the game.
Sincerely,
Lidsyukerberg

Watch Out!!! I have an opinion, and I'm not afraid to use it!!!

Fully agree on both points. If Drake was putting up better numbers, signing McCarty probably wouldn't be an option.

Fully agree as well on the McCarty and making money comment. Everyone needs to make money, that's why we all get jobs. McCarty needs money just like the rest of us. What does the guy do best? Plays hockey.

I hope people who seem to be against this McCarty signing can just sit back and enjoy this feel good story. Also, if DMac had nothing left, we wouldn't bring him back.

I'm not really expecting McCarty to fight all that much. I think he'll mostly just throw is weight around, and create a little chaos infront of the opposing net.

For the price Tag Dallas Drake was doing a bang up job, however, IF Mac continues to play with the energy and style he was playing with in GR he should and by all rights probably will take over for Drake.

But please don't confuse that with me saying I hate Drake or he deserves to be benched.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
