Fresh Homer for the playoffs. Woo.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Good news that he is healthy. I don't know that he will crack the lineup much unless there are injuries, but at least we will have someone who knows how to defend his teammates if we need him. The bad news in everyone coming back from injuries though is that Leino will probably be sent back down. He has impressed me thus far. Oh well! He will impress in camp and hopefully be on the team next year.

I guess the Wings can keep Stuart on LTIR after Sunday,otherwise they would have to send Helm amd Leino back down. I wonder why they havent put Homer on it yet?

I'm pretty sure it can be retroactive, so the Wings can still save cap space if he goes on it, even if he isnt on LTIR yet.
It is not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.

McCarty is still playing hockey? He makes a nice shelf ornament I guess. I love McCarty but enough is enough, time for life after hockey.... McCarty's Irish Pub and Casino.

I think that he is going to rehab in the AHL, and with all the injuries will get to come back once he is healthy. Once we are healthy he will go down until the point where they can call him up for playoffs without cap mattering anymore.

First of all this is my first post...

Mac brings an incredible energy to the lockeroom and to the ice. He loves the game not the $$. Not many players in this league can say that. The team will need him when playoffs get here and the opposing team thinks that the only way to beat us is by physically hurting us.

Welcome Bama,

McCarty is a great guy for the locker, its true but we really have plenty of other great locker room individuals. I will always remember Mac and what he has done but he isn't even half of the player he once was and he is so injury prone. He may be one of our only players that will drop the gloves but i don't feel his presence will intimidate nor deter anyone from pushing any of our players around. Maybe if we could combine bits and pieces of Mac and Downey we could have a legit player but as it is I don't see much benefit from having Mac on the team anymore. His best years are way behind him and thats just life unfortunately. I think we fans a starved for a player like the Mac of old.

Glad to hear Homer's sugery went well... As for McCarty, I don't see him cracking the line-up, but you can never have too many good locker room guys, especially during the playoffs.
Go Blue!!!

Well yeah I am seeing as I'll be 27 in June, but I don't see what that has to do anything. I want drama.

Someone did a study and found that the biggest supporters of fighting percentage wise was female's 18 to 35.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

McCarty is done....he was a warrior....WAS hes only taking up space that someone who actually contributes would be in. see Leino, Helm, Ericsson....By the way, welcome Bama !

Some stat in one of the fight threads the other day showed fans who most want to see fighting in hockey were females ages 18-35. Represent girl!
