Maybe with someone like Henrik he would settle down and just be that good defenseman that we have all seen him be.
I think just a change in scenery could do a lot for him. I think the Leafs fans constantly riding him has to have taken a toll on him psychologically. He won't ever be a defensive dynamo, but I don't think he'd be as bad on Broadway as most people are making him out to be. However, he is too expensive and we could do a bit better, IMO.

If the Leafs want to dump him on us, they'd have to take something lousy back. If they want something good back from us, they'll have to send something good with McCabe.
