Hamonic is a kid. Eaton also played fairly little last season. Ditto Jurcina. And Streit was out for the year.
in the hell
does McCabe not qualify for that team again?
Hamonic may be a kid but he is still better than McCabe at this point in his career; so is MacDonald, so is Jurcina and Streit definitely is. Eaton will have a spot no matter what on the third pairing. That leaves Wishart and Mottau. Wishart is a young kid who can't get sent down so he earns a spot (at the very least in the press box). If McCabe can outplay Mottau then so be it. But honestly I'm not sure if he can. At this point in his career he has lost multiple steps.
Like I said, I wouldn't sign him but maybe I'd offer him a TO and see if he can beat Mottau/Wishart for that 6/7 spot.
And those guys didn't play because they got injured. Are you telling me you should move someone up on the depth chart if they miss time due to injury?
