Will Bryan McCabe return to the Maple Leafs lineup just in time to be traded?
The Leafs highest paid defenceman has been a target of boo birds in Toronto for his play. Should the Leafs try and trade McCabe?
Have your say in our forum.
1)The long term effect that John Ferguson Jr, dealings will have on this team.
2)The selfish nature of every player on this team, to think that 1 person is more important than the whole team.(and to clarify , I am not talking about Mats our all time scoring leader whom has good reason to retire here)
One only has to look as far as the teachers union to realize that a fish stinks form the head down.
Most teachers actually cost us tax payers a ton in retirement wages, while they go out and start a second career.
Wake up Toronto and stop attending, buying memorabilia, hot dogs etc. until this team is a team. We owe it to ourselves !

Among the ones you name, Belak is a UFA this summer and only makes $650,000 so why buy him out now? Just don't re-sign him.
Each of Gill, Antropov, Bell, and Raycroft have one year left after this at a total salary of $8,251,667.
Kubina and Ponikarovsky each has two years left after this for a total salary of $14,210,000.
McCabe and Tucker each has three years after this at a total salary of $26,250,000.
Blake has FOUR years after this at a total salary of $16,000,000.
Add it all up and you'd be buying out some $65 million dollars. The formula, involving two-thirds of each salary, is spread out over the terms of the contract as hits against the cap, so you'd wind up with a lot of "Robbie Earls."
