I also don't take it as a small thing that he is the captain of a very successful US team. Getting a bunch of guys together who play against each other the other 11 months of the year and then forming them into a very good, cohesive team is incredibly difficult. Housley obviously is the key factor in this, but I think the captain does as well.
Yeah, I watched parts of three games (Wisconsin, WJC) on TV and think I noticed him a couple times. It was hard to follow/cheer him on.

It was easier in the early going cheering for Grigorenko (he stands out).

I watched the first period of USA/Canada game. McCabe sure was noticeable there (two goals!)!

I heard the McCabe interview on XM92 this morning. He is a well-spoken leader.
