Darren McCarty On Dylan Larkin's Contract Talks

from Nate Brown of Detroit Hockey Now,

Longtime Red Wings forward and fan favorite Darren McCarty weighed in on the The Big D Energy show on Woodward Sports. The whole segment starts at about the 20 minute mark.

Laying out how Larkin is the captain while being the second line center, McCarty was very clear in his assessment.

“If he’s going to re-sign Dylan to a long-term commitment, he still knows he’s gotta put the 1C in there for the 1C money,” McCarty said on the show. “That’s where everyone else falls into place.”

But then he continued down the path that has been heavily debated by fans on social media and some analysts as well.

“God forbid that this doesn’t work out cuz Yzerman and Larkin are on two different pages” McCarty continued. “Will Steve Yzerman move on from Dylan Larkin? Hundred percent.”

McCarty Believes Larkin Will Be In For the Long Haul

For those fans concerned, McCarty was hardly professing doom and gloom. If anything, he’s calling it as he sees it, a unique perspective from someone who played on the same roster as general manager Steve Yzerman during Detroit’s glory years.
