Those points you could 'care less' about are helping us win games this year. Those 'meaningless' goals he scores have played integral parts in us winning playoff series.
That's what makes him a difference maker when he's in the lineup.
Guys like Lidstrom, Chelios, Pronger, Blake, Niedermayer and MacInnis aren't considered great defencemen strictly because of their defensive play you know. Or maybe I'm being presumptious in assuming you knew that too.
It's foolish to say you could care less about point totals. McCabe's defensive play is more than passable to complement everything else he brings to the team.
Besides you said he was inconsistent. Improving points totals in 7 of 8 seasons is not the hallmark of an inconsistent player. Regardless of how you try and spin it.
