The Detroit Free Press had a nice, long piece on Darren McCarty’s NHL comeback attempt. It’s pretty brutal, in terms of McCarty’s gambling/money issues and a marijuana problem.
Things are going better, though. It seems he’s been called up to the AHL from the IHL Flint Generals. I didn’t realize Kris Draper is a co-owner of the Generals. He helped McCarty land with them.
Also, Brian Leetch has some crazy friends:
In the end, scheduling conflicts having kept Bobby Orr, Derek Jeter and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder from attending, the night was left solely to Rangers.
I wonder what the three would have talked about. Or if all three had the same conflict. Like they’re all in the same poker game or something.
