Darren Mccary anyone

bring mccarty back? he is on waivers, and he will surely spice the team up. i still think we missed out on picking up kyle quincey from detroit. he averages over 22 minutes a night for la now, and has 8 points in 14 games with them so far. and la has allowed 17 less goals than the flames, and they have played one less game than the flames though but still.

I don't see any reason we would need McCarty on this team.

+1 on that. We need to work on our D game (as per the start of the season debacle aka games). If this involves some trades or more discipline or both so be it. I think a methodical yet efficient approach to the D zone coverage will change everything. But what do I know?

We don't need another 4th line spare on the team, we've already got Roy

I couldn't be more happy with our fourth line guys. Obviously no need for a guy like McCarty on this team.

And since LA claimed Quincey, just how did you imagine we could have claimed him and got him?

I imagine we might have been able to trade for him as he was rumored to be shopped around prior to being put on waivers..
Not that I think picking up Quincey would have been the solution to anything since we would have then had 8 d-men on the roster with Pardy being subjected to waivers and Vandermeer still healthy at the time.

And to the original question no I do not think we need Darren McCarty at all.

Sooo, let me get this straight...

Because Kyle Quincey is a borderline, decent, NHL 4,5,6 Dman, who has some upside......we should bring back Darren McCarty??

I feel like Chicken McNuggets, I think because of this, we outta bring back Theo Fleury.

Blue is my favorite colour, I wonder what Mike Vernon is up to.

pure awesome

I can see where he's going though... Quincy just made him think of available Red Wings

I personally think Darren has no place on our team. Hell... looking at QC, I see him on the 3rd line there. All that guy brought to Det was heart... and he has to have lost it by now being dumped by them, and we have plenty of it when CGY is rolling.

I don't see any skill Darren could bring that we couldn't get out of a couple QC guys if we needed to make some adjustments (I can only see him being valuable if we sustained more injuries)

Apparently the Wings put McCarty on waivers so that they can send him to the AHL incase of injuries.

It's explained here: http://www.spectorshockey.net/index....cles&Itemid=55
