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.
His cap hit may have been 5.75 but his salary was 7+ million last year. He was the highest paid player on the leaves last season. And he's not worth 5 Million let alone 7.
