WingNut722 Posted February 20, 2012 Share Posted February 20, 2012 The Detroit Red Wings have put backup goalie Ty Conklin on waivers today, confirming what many believed that Joey MacDonalod is deserving of the Number 2 position in the Red Wings netminders. Joey Mac's incredible play of late only solidified him for the positon, and Mike Babcock's confidence was well-placed in granting him starting duties yesterday vs. San Jose and not rushing Jimmy Howard's return. In his current eight geam record, JoeMac has posted 1.66 goals against and 0.934 save percentage. That's almost worthy of a starter's numbers, much less a back-up. The story here from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.http://www.freep.com/article/20120220/SPORTS05/120220036/Red-Wings-place-goaltender-Ty-Conklin-on-waivers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
