A few eye-gouging mistakes to start the season clouded what was actually a great season from McCabe. Take a look at the Leafs record with, and without him, you will realize that McCabe is one of the more valuable players for the TML's. In my opinion, he's right behind Mats.

His 5.75 million cap hit is fair value in comparison to what he brings to his team. Especially considering how much the cap has grown recently.
He was on pace for 35 points. There's no way he is/was good enough defensively to make him worth 5.75M if he only puts up 35 points.

Maybe 4.5-5... but not almost 6.
