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.

Caber is being made a scapegoat and deserves a break. This is a team sport remember One man doesn't loose you a game like that. The whole team lost the game long before the overtime goal. The leafs defensive play was atrocious while in their own zone. They all have to play better defense as a team and that includes all the forwards!

JFJ should be held accountable for this team. JFJ did not do a good job this summer at all. The team really needed to re-vitalize and get some better players on more lines to improve the team over all and that doesn't appear to have happened.

He is deservedly the target of the boo-birds...why not? They pay his salary. Let's see...I am a soldier, get paid about 0.8% of his salary, so is it alright for me to take out 20 or 30 of my comrades while engaging the enemy? I think not. Athletes' exhorbitant salaries hardly seem justified when my friends and I put our lives on the line for a mere pittance compared to these whiners.

It's time to do the one thing that should have been done with McCabe after Bettman took away McCabe's only effective check, the can-opener. Move McCabe to wing and put a real defenseman back there on the blueline. Shades of Wendel Clark!!!! Maybe then he will earn the ridiculous amount of money he is paid.

Hey all you wanna be journalists...check your spelling. A person cannot be a "looser", it's loser...use the proper there(their, they're)and don't forget the U in colour and honour.

Ouch, its tough to watch Leaf fans eat their own. Give it time. He is not my favorite player (none of the Leafs are), but if he is coached properly, and gets a sports psychologist to help him focus, hs will improve. Sad to read such harsh comments on anybody in our society.

This will all be decided in the next 3 games. FLA,CHI,ATL.

If Leafs loose all 3, then bye bye either JFJ or Maurice. 2 Losses Maurice gone.

I don't expect McCabe to make it xmas.

Ben, Everyone has always thought Brian McCabe was over paid and over rated at 6 million per season. He is not over paid and over rated at 1.5 million per season. He is second tier defensemen just as Dave Ellett was. JFJ is the problem not McCabe, if JFJ and by default the Leaf fans want to pay a 2nd tier defenceman that type of money, why would McCabe turn it down. Doesn't change anything, he sucks as a player at 1.5 million and at 6 million. Throwing an extra 4.5 million or so a season at him isn't going to make him better.

I think fans have about 7 million reasons to let mccabe know what they're thinking.

For me it isnt that he scored on his own net in Buffalo. Its his play in his own end that I have a problem with. He is lost, and takes stupid penalties.

His play in his own end seems to be getting worse the last few years. All he thinks about is scoring goals.

It doesnt matter if he gets 20 + goals, 60 points, how many goals against is he on the ice for ?

The bottom line is that McCabe is a power play specialist and nothing more. To pay such a 1 dimensional player $ 7 + million a year shows why the Leafs are such a lousy hockey team.

Add in Sundins $ 5.5 million and Kubinas $ 5 million a year and that adds up to roughly 1 / 3 of the team payroll for 3 stiffs.

Being a Sens fan, I don't like the Leafs and I would never pay them that kind of money to either McCabe or Kubina but NOBODY deserves this kind of bs!!!
