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.

Please, ppl, what did Mccabe do to you? Sell you a broken vacuum cleaner? Spit in your fries? Scratch your car? NO! He is one of 20 guys who play like crap on a crappy team, and you all single him and Raycroft out. I am his biggest fan and I do hope he gets traded, How he and Razor lives in this hellhole I will never know. You ppl wonder why this team ccant be any good year after year --- look at all the free agents who went elsehwere (Drury, Smyth, etc). No one wants to play in this hellhole becuase one little mistake and they end up on the front pages and everyone's booing them. There is even a Mccabe hate group on facebook! What are you --- wanna be New York Yankee fans? Get a life you loser Leaf fans! I've had it! I am going to get scalped tickets to every game Ottawa, Montreal, Detroit and Buffalo plays here and I am going cheer as loud as I can for real teams who have REAL fans that support them! GO SENS! GO HABS! Make the Leaf fans suffer for another 40 years until a more sensible generation replaces them! Ya! And Tucker, Sundin, Kaberle, Toskala, Blake..... get out of here while you can!

please do not trade Mccabe! at my advanced age there are only a few true joys in life. gimme a pail of good scotch, a fine cigar, a big honking bag of salted peanuts and an opportunity to watch this dufus flipping and flopping like a fish on the dock, trying to play defense.....priceless.

The Leafs are stuck with stiffs like McCabe, Kubina because they are over paid. Only way they might be able to trade them is if they pay some of the contract ie $ 1.5 - 2 mill a year.

JFJ is probably stuck with these stiffs until there contracts run out.

I agree Vince. Keep McCabe. Heck, keep 'em all!

What the Leafs really need is the Resurrection of Harold Ballard. Now there was a man with a vision.

The Maple Leafs would be well advised to trade McCabe if at all possible and get a draft choice or an up and coming good, young forward who has wheels and can score.

I didn't see the game on Thursday against Pittsburgh, but I saw Tlusty's goals. His second goal was great; he had the wheels to get by the defenceman and let go a great shot.

They need more of these types of young forwards.

It's amazing what speed can do.

Put him in the press box for a few games.

Ben, sorry I have been away for a while and this will be my last comment on this issue. Edmonton has been to the show both successfully and not, five wins two losses in the modern era, Leafs have not, have the Leafs even been close. Difference is, I'm not professing playoffs and Stanley Cups when clearly nothing could be further from the truth. You Leaf fans are your own worst enemies and then you wonder why everyone loves to take the piss out of you.

To Derek

If you think being a one dimensial player is being one of the best in the league then you are exactly why the Leafs suck. Your loyalty to a horrendus team is what Leaf management loves. The whole team needs to be rebuilt. They might be a good A.H.L team because thats about the talent level they have.

McCabe is far from being one of the leagues best defence men. He gets all his points on the power play. 5 on 5 he is useless as well as being useless in his own end. Also he takes alot of bad penalties. The only reason he was on the Olympic team was because of Pat Quinn.

This is a very bad team with no hope of getting better in the future.

McCabe can check, skate backwards and shoot slapshots from the top of the circle. His wrist shots need a lot of work!!! We have to be patient, McCabe is one of the leauge's best defencemen and I would rather have him kill a penalty then someone like Kabina.
Derek Latif, 2007-10-21 14:32:21

That's some wishful thinking Bill. Now quick, tell us what teams might possibly take McCabe and Kubina along with their $12+ salaries! That's the part of the "new NHL" that JFJ could not get his head around. So they either send them to the minors and "eat" that $12 million (which I rather doubt the owners, i.e., the Teacher's group, would go along with, OR, you're stuck with them until the contracts expire.
