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.

I may be mistaken but Doesn't McCabe have a no movement clause of every kind.He can not be traded, demoted to minors or be a healthy scratch.Even if that were not the case who would take him at that price?

The sock analogy is actually a good one. But where most people change (and wash) their socks MLSE keep wearing theirs, and try to convice Leaf Nation that what they're smelling is actually the over-priced perfume that's used to try and hide the stench. Then they charge the faithful more every year for the opportunity to smell it, and fans hold their breath, and tell themselves that their watering eyes are actually tears of joy.

...1...Who would want him??

...2..Who can afford him??

...3..And since you're stuck with him, play him wisely- not when you're killing a penalty or during overtime when you're playing 4 on 4 and

...4...play him with a faster, more defensive teammate who can cover up for him and...

...5..Don't play him with Sundin who was -4 in the Buffalo game and...

...6..After you get his reputation back, then trade him...probably to Detroit who were happy to take Larry Murphy off your hands..but look at the bright side, everybody else on the team is "under the radar" with all the attention that McCabe gets

He's not a bad defencemen. But he's far from type of player the money he is making reflects. And I don't blame Fergs. It's the owners they won't let him get the players he wants. They have final say. They know about making money but know knothing about running a hockey team.

john not if mccabe waves his no trade clause and that would be the best for everyone but i feel sorry for the team he goes too..

Leafs, other than being an embarrassment, have the highest priced defense in the league, and arguably the worst. That points to one person, and that's the GM. Toronto need a good GM and some time to clean up the horrible mess left by JFJ and his predecessors. Don't look for significant improvement anytime soon.

Signing McCabe for a disgusting amount of $$ was a mistake, once again proving that Ferguson is not capable of managing the team.

Hmmmmm - Resigning Belfour + Domi, buying both out, and resigning McCabe (+ missing playoffs for 2 years) should be a sign that this guy does not know what he is doing.

I love the Leafs, but the sad reality is that they are not a player or two away from being a dominant team. They are mediocre at best!

We need to bring in an experienced GM (much like they did with the Raptors), and changes need to be made. Otherwise, the cup drought will continue. With a cap in place, they can no longer rely on outspending other teams - they need to have intelligent people in the organization who will spend money wisely.

The Leafs (if they ever hope to win a championship) need to clean house from top to bottom. For starters, put a GM & Director of Player Personnel in place whose main priority is to develop players within the system - and who won't trade them at deadlines for has-beens. Oh yeah, McCabe like most of the Leafs should never have been re-signed in the first place. With the money he makes, the Leafs are stuck with him.

whats all the hype MCCABE has been useless for years. some people think he is great for all the pts he got last year. all on the power play mind you. how many did he score even strength..he is useless with his defensive skills and he is the biggest turtle man i have ever seen.. ever seen him fight drops to the knees and turtles or tries to get behind the ref oh dont hit dont hit me..trade him for a roll of tape and that would be too much...

The BEST part is that they can't! Can't even send him down to the minors! Worst contract ever!! Atta-boy JFJ.
