I've always liked MacDonald, all the best to him.

Solid backup goaltender or poor man's 1b goaltender?

Thank you in advance.
What you will notice is that his laternal movement is his worst quality, he looks generally "slow" out there. He's also terrible at playing the puck. Other than that he's alright. Remember though, there's a reason he's been up and down in the AHL and NHL all his career.

He was good, because he had a great game shape from AHL games. Now he hasn't played for almost a year.. (?)

I predict him to struggle, if he doesn't have any game shape, when he gets the first call.

But good luck for him about another opportunity.

Happy trails Joey Mac. This game is the one I seem to associate him with, 23rd straight in the home streak (I was there too )

I was never comfortable with him as a backup(well maybe compared to Conklin last year but that isn't saying much ) but he did a decent job when called upon,he did a decent job in Grand Rapids last year too

good luck to him in Calgary

I liked Joey as a 3rd stringer, but Mrazek looks capable at least in spot duty now. Good luck in Calgary to him.

Good call! He definitely wanted to be cut loose when we signed Gustafson. He would have definitely helped in GR but he was obviously tired of playing in the A. Good luck Joey Mac!

I'm glad for him. He's a solid back-up. I always liked him.

For whatever reason, I always pulled for the guy. Hope he does well in Calgary.

He was an unsung hero for us last year when Howie was down and Conklin sucked, I will remember him fondly. Really losing him on waivers was the best think for us in my opinion. There just wasn't much room at the inn especially once Monster is back so there's that. I think he is a below average backup goalie but a first rate AHL starter, third NHL goalie. I am concerned for Flames fans with how well he will move after ten months off or about his conditioning at this point but his time should be short lived. Kipper will be the starter when healthy and Leland Irving > Joey MacDonald.
