McCabe is a traffic cone with a big shot who is an abomination at even strength. He no longer has the mobility to create his own shot and open up shooting lanes. Which is why 8 out his 10 shots from the point went into the opposing teams shin pads and out of the zone. The only thing McCabe can do is shoot a one timer off a perfect pass from a PP QB who has mobility. The Rangers don't have that. So McCabe became useless for us.
The fact that our brain trust decided he should be the one carrying the puck up the ice for us on the PP was equal parts hilarious and sad.
You have no idea how much I agree, but easier for us to say than someone with an expiring contract.
