Should McCabe be traded?
Sun, February 3, 2008

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.

Suck it up princess and play the darn game. He's way over rated and overpaid. He deserves all the flack he is receiving.

Don't feel bad Brian.The pain will subside on payday.

I think the fans should lay off Bryan.. hes had enough, he realizes what he has done and knows the outcome before we as fans do... he is his own critic.. do you not think he has enough to think/worry about? leave him alone, certainly you will all notice a difference from this day on... c'mon Bryan... relax and play the game you so well know how to do... take care... all my best....!

McCabe is challenged with the fundemnetals of playing defense in the NHL. Yes he has a good point shot, but he needs Kaberle to set him up, otherwise he is useless on the point. He is terrible in his own end, always has been. The Leafs have no go to guys when it comes to defending in their own end. They could get four quality journeymen defense for what they are paying McCabe and Kaberle.

If he gets millions... he shouldn't be making mistakes.... You don't see Doctors who makes 1/10th or less than he does and makes stupid mistakes like he does.

Bench this overpaid pile of ??? Make this idiot think about either playing to a level of truly earning his money (GASP)... or get very few minutes of ice time so he doesn't hurt his team anymore!

Yes the Fans should let up on McCabe,that's part of the problem, maybe a lot of players would rather play elsewhere, not a fun atmosphere that's for sure, wouldn't that be ironic, JFJ can't get players because they don't want to play their and JFJ can't tell anybody, especially the Fans, maybe the players don't like you (fans) either.....

Is McCabe over paid? Yes! Is he an elite defenseman? No! Can he play better? Yes! Is he entirely to blame? No! The entire defense of the Leafs in not up to NHL caliber. The "Big 3" who earn a huge portion of the teams salary are not worth the money. Kaberle while a great puck mover plays like an old women in his own end. He is scared of the physical play. Kubina give me a break, he is easily JFJ's biggest mistake to date. He gave this over rated defenseman way to much money to come here. Hal Gill reminds me of Goofy from Mickey Mouse! It seems once or twice a game when he turns to skate backward he goes end over tea kettle on his butt! While he is an imposing figure he is slow and cumbersome on the ice. Young White is a swift skating puck carrier who must take more care in front of his own net, but he is still learning. The rest are just below average platoon defenseman. Coliachovo never seems healthy enough to play so the jury is still out on him. It is one area that needs a complete redevelopment because when you give up 52 shots in a NHL game...well as the old saying goes, "Something is rotting in Denmark!"

You don't inadvertantly knock a puck in your own net. He gives away too many shots. Goodbye McCabe

i am sorry but the leafs are stuck with him. simply put, McCabe is just not that good a player. Certainly not worth that contract. I agree that he should play the wing, because he obviously cannot play defense. I don't think that he ever could. It was laughable when he was chosen to play in the Olympics. (thanks solely to Pat Quinn)
