Man it really sucks we traded him away, when healthy he could still do wonders on a line with Teemu.
If we had never signed Bertuzzi, we probably could have kept him when Niedermayer and Selanne came back. I'd like to imagine we'd have beaten Detroit in the '09 playoffs if we had McDonald around, as we had a second line of Teemu+scraps (Carter, Ebbett, and Christensen spent time on that line IIRC). I think we would have had a good shot at beating Chicago in the WCF, and anything could happen in the SCF. Man, we might've been able to win the Cup that year if we just had more depth.
