Give a 1 yr deal to McCabe

Pierre Gauthier was ready to give 3M$/1yr contract to Roman Hamrlik. Why not fill Hamrlik's with Bryan McCabe? He is a good veteran and at 36 years old I believe he can still play good hockey. I mean he had a 43 points season only two years ago. He pretty much had success everywhere he went, especially against us. I still have nightmare of that Kaberle-McCabe duo on the PP.

He shoots left, though, which could be a problem (Spacek, Markov, Gill, Gorges, Emelin are all lefty). But he has experience, size (6'2 and 220lbs, isnt afraid to drop the gloves and is a bit dirty in the corners). Markov would find his shot very exploitable on the PP.

I'm sure 5 on 5 he can't be worse than Spacek is. If we can trade Spacek, he'd be ideal here:

Markov - McCabe
Gill - Subban
Gorges - Emelin/Weber/Diaz

And even if we can't trade Spacek, carry eight defenceman and let Diaz in the AHL for a while.
