Downey is a goon who wont see the ice in the playoffs. Drake is god awful.

A healthy, in shape, motivated McCarty immediately leaps over both those guys on the depth chart.

Should be $475,000 since that's the league minimum.

The Grind Line - reunited and it feels so good



McCarty vs. Pronger in the playoffs would be a great battle.

Things like this make me proud to be a Wings fan. We haven't forgotten Darren, or Jiri (Fischer) or Vlad (Kontantinov), or any other player who represents our team well.

Special praise to Kris Draper who co-owns the Flint Generals. Draper and Mac met late last year and Draper was impressed with the desire Darren had to return to playing hockey. Mac was willing to work hard to play hockey again and Draper had enough faith in his former teammate to offer him a contract to play with the Generals, giving Mac the opportunity to become a player again.



Way to go Darren, Way to go Detroit, and Way to go Drapes!

Welcome back Darren, you earned it.
Babcock has said that McCarty will only play if he helps winning games, there are no breaks for him

Good to have him back

You could say so.
Draper is an enormous reason McCarty even attempted to make a comeback.

Good stuff, hopefully he can get his game back on track. From what I remember he was pretty much done in Calgary.

McCarty back with the Wings and Forsberg back with the Avs on the same day?

Maybe they meet in the playoff and the rivalry is renewed.

450k for a couple dozen games? You just know that as soon as the season is over McCarty's spending that money on a Harley and a couple ounces of blow.
