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.
Well said.

When he came back from injury they played much better. The winning percentage without Mccabe is worse than without Sundin.

Mccabe is far better than Redden, IMO. Toronto doesn't want to get rid of him because he's bad, they want to get rid of him because they're rebuilding and to shed almost 6 mill off future salary.
