Joey MacDonald (claimed by Calgary)

So apparently he has no value or they think he will clear.

They might want to send him down to GR given what a gong show Thomas McCollum is at this point.

With the Monster and Mrazek in the mix...J-Mac is the odd many out. We probably don't see him again unless there are more injuries [knocks on head].

I see him getting claimed by one of the bottom feeders, but I hope he clears.

I doubt any team will claim him now since he was injured and hasn't played any games yet. good move if we want to send him down. bad move if we wanted someone to claim him

Nah, I don't think we want anyone to claim him. It could happen but seems unlikely. Gustafsson is going to out for quite a while so we need Mrazek in Detroit. GR is in a playoff race and they will absolutely fall apart if McCollum or Pearce are the #1 goalie there. MacDonald will likely become the #1 for the Griffins if/when he clears waivers.

I hope he gets claimed. He deserves to be a backup in the NHL.

Dan Ellis has a save percentage of .939 and a goal against average just under 2.00. Carolina clearly doesn't need a backup.

Also, Enroth is a much better backup than MacDonald.

I think Montreal's looking for a better back up than Budaj. They kept Price in net throughout the pounding they recieved in Toronto.

I hope Mac does get picked up. He deserves to be in the NHL and not get buried in the minors. But it's unlikely right now since he's just getting back from a major injury. But if he plays well with the Griffins, his value might go up and we can trade him to a team in need of a back up.

I hope he clears. Griffins need him while Mrazek is gone and the two makes a good tandem heading into the playoffs.

Good luck wherever you end up Joey. While we are in the waiving mood, I know someone else who would be a good candidate

That would make me so happy. The amount of times I yell at the TV during a Wings game would reduce by about 35%. We can dream cant we?

You know I write for a site covering the Montreal Canadiens and Budaj is about as good as one of those goal covers with the holes you use in the driveway. He's so slow reaction wise and he always loses the puck. I think in two games he has given up almost what Price had in 8, before the failure on Hockey Day in Canada

The Flames claimed him, per John Shannon on Twitter.

He would have been a big help in GR until the Monster returns.

Hello gentlemen/ladies, friendly Flames fan here.

Inquiring about the qualities of one mister Joseph MacDonald. What's his lateral movement like, his glove hand, his 5 hole? Or perhaps, where are his deficiencies?

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

Thank you in advance.

I see him as a decent backup when injuries arise, but if the team is healthy he should be a 3rd stringer.

I think he showed the last two years that he can be a backup in the right situation. Just missed 10 months with back problems, so don't expect a work horse.

I'm happy for him, he was only the 4th guy here as it stands and would be gone in the summer anyway.

He was actually really good when he came in and played some games for Detroit last year. He contributed to that big home winning streak the wings had. With a work horse like Kipper, Mcdonald is a perfect backup nothing wrong with him
