from Bob Duff of Duffer’s Dabbles at the Windsor Star,
McCarty is happy to do whatever the team asks of him at this most important time of year. “To fill a role and to be a part of it is an honour,” McCarty said. “Obviously, you’d like to play and be part of it on the ice, but that’s not the way it’s been meant to be so far. This time’s a little different. It’s sort of on the outside looking in, but that’s not how it feels to me. It’s just nice to be a part of it.
“The bottom line is to win. That’s what this organization is all about. Just to be here and be at the finals again, it’s exciting. Everybody does their little part to chip in when they can.”
McCarty, 37, says he feels like a proud papa as he watches his Grand Rapids teammates like Jonathan Ericsson, Darren Helm, Ville Leino and Justin Abdelkader fill important roles along Detroit’s latest drive to the Cup.
