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.

Agree with you Norbit. Somehow I fail to see how McCabe could have made any difference whatsoever in the 8-0 shellacking.

And while I agree as well with gordholio that he could help a contending team, especially from a power-play aspect, I'm hard-pressed to see what contending team has the necessary cap space to commit the better part of $5 million a year for the next three years to a power-play specialist - never mind a mediocre D-man whose salary SHOULD be in the range of a Joe Corvo rather than a Dion Phaneuf. Ottawa has much the same problem with Redden and his $6 million salary, but at least in their case his expires in June when he becomes a UFA. Good luck to him and his agent in finding any takers at that level anywhere else!

You rest your case? after 1 win? I see...

hey, mcabe haters, see the game last nite? Mcabe in unifurm, and 4-2 upset of second place Mtl? after 8-0 loss without him? I rest my case

I wish people would stick on the topic at hand. Reading through messages between people is pretty boring and useless.

Anyways, the Maple Leafs will probably try to trade McCabe. If some contending team wants him, I'm sure he'll waive his no-trade clause.

I think McCabe would bring at least a second round pick, maybe a low first round pick.

Pete

I think you may be developing an unhealthy fascination with me, as you seem to go to all the threads I post on and reply to me whether I addressed you or not. On this occasion I was not addressing you, but the laughable situation the Leafs are facing. but since you are clamoring for attention I'll bite: how am I hypocrite exactly? watch the response people, trust me, it will be worth a laugh and full of nothing rational or half-intelligent.
Norbit, 2008-02-07 14:52:07

Norbitt, not only are you conflicted, your a hypocrite as well.

Has JFJ be sued yet for fraud wrt his resume that claimed he was a GM?

I think McCabe would bring so little in a trade that it is probably better to keep him and use him on the power play. Fletch really has his work cut out for him. Start turfing out JFJ's brothers-inlaw on the scouting staff. The only hope for rebuilding is the draft. To make good choices requires knowledgeable scouts. At the moment, there is not much knwwledge apart from Fletch.

Their whole miserable team should be traded. lol, that was awesome when the Laffs fans actually cheered the Panthers last goal. Normally I would have contempt for fans that did that, but in the case of an 8-0 drubbing at the hands of Florida, I think they were justified.

Thta being said, after this season McCabes stock is wayyy down and they won't get much in return for him, particularily when Forsberg, Sundin and Oli Jokinen are all rumored to be on the move. They should take what they can get regardless, and turf Gill, Kubina,Tucker and Coliacovo(did I spell that right?) while they're at it for whatever they can get. Rebuilding is a painful process, and I think it's long overdue for the Leafs. of course, if they manage a miracle and actually make the playoffs I could continue to laugh at them for a while, so Im conflicted...

If you think the Maple Leafs have no players that other teams would want, you must be living in a dream world.

Of course there are some tradeable assets on the Maple Leafs.

Fletcher's job is to get the most he can for them and rid the team of them and get younger and clear some cap space to sign a few free agents next year.
