I also doubt that McCabe would want to go to a potential losing team over a playoff team in a much more glitzy locale.
Finally, I doubt that McCabe, even with the NMC, gets to tell the Leafs which team "he prefers" to go to.
He makes six million next year, with a cap hit of 5.75 million. And, yeah he'll cost. But, the prices most Ranger fans are offering here is quite close to being fair. Certainly more fair than all this stuff built around the likes of Staal, etc.
This is the same player who Fletcher said there was "no interest in" around the league, and the same player that Garth Snow said he had never considered trading for? When exactly did McCabe's value (on ice and on the trade market) go through such a radical change?
Sorry, but Ranger fans here are being quite realistic in their perceptions of McCabe's market value.
The ones who are offering Backman and a 5th are dreaming, but Prucha and a 3rd or 2nd should get it done.
