Paired with someone steady like Ohlund he'd be a great addition.

I wouldn't have a problem if we traded say Krajicek and Hansen for him, which beats the supposed Florida offer. The only concern would be if it throws our excellent dman payroll structure out of whack.
Actually, I completely agree with you. I personally don't see McCabe as a the guys for a weak defense (like my Isles). But, paired with a stud defensive dman like Ohlund, McCabe's grit, offensive abilities, and physical play, would be a great complement. I think McCabe would be a huge asset to a team like VCR.
