Default Detroit Red wings Fans In Grand Rapids

Any redwings fans in grand rapids get the chance to see Darren McCarty yet, i wanted to see him play with Flint but didnt get the chance he is going to be called up within the next 2 weeks. He's been playing tough,and scoring.
good to see a fan favorite get back on the right path.

I saw him play with flint against the K-wings, wasnt very impressed, he didnt seem to be playing that hard, but then the next day I found out that he had already signed with grand rapids so I guess he had reason to take it easy. Was the most people I ever seen in wings stadium though. Hope he gets called up so they can get the grind line back together

He's not the same fighter he used to be.

no, he went bankrupt and all his cool stuff got sold at an auction, I remember the auction listing a few years back, he had a sweat boat, a harley, a vette and a whole bunch of other cool shit.

I am glad to see him back. I understood why he left and understand now he is not the player he was. But as long as he can contribute it will be good to watch him on the ice again.
Probably one of my favorite wings of all time.

he's amazingly out of shape right now... the wings have straight up told him he won't play unless he shapes up.

Good fighter or not at least he's willing. I'm so FAWKING SICK of seeing every team come in and beat us up like a bunch of little squirrels. Not one single team in the league thinks twice about running our top players because we are a soft team and they don't have to worry about any retribution.

Its not just the players fault, that instegator rule has to go away. Downey is willing as well, but i would have liked to see smaller scrapper tough guys like tucker come here. But its not the wings style.

Darcy Tucker? God I hate that guy! I suppose it would be nice to see him beating up on the opposing teams instead of the wings.

Anyone ever see him lay out Jason Wolley a few years ago. One of the biggest sucker punches I've ever seen. Boy he tagged him good though!

I like Downey but he can't stay out of the penalty box and never scores.

His job is not to score but to protect his teamates, which the wings have been missing since mac left.

I was there for his home debut hat trick night.
Great to see the arena full for a change, the ovation was cool and did I mention $1 beer?
