Agree, drugs and alcohol got the best of him. Oh well lucky guy got his 4th stanley cup playing minimum games. Lol.
Was it that, or was it having worse linemates? I don't remember McCarty getting much top line minutes during the 2000's. By that point, he was playing almost entirely on the grind line.
I know the guy scored 50 goals in juniors, but so did Kirk Maltby.
