A year before:
Wayne Primeau, Brendan Shanahan, Barnaby, Kubina, Len Barrie.

Over the same period, Scott Stevens fought 6 times. Half as much as Brian.


Nice try.
I didn't say recently...the guy is almost 40, McCabe is in his 20's. Anyone with common sense could figure that out.

There's Chara. Who else?
McCabe isn't a damn #1 dmen. He is a #2 and an average one at that.

Ya, lots of "average" defenceman have 50-point seasons and 25+ minutes of ice time on good teams.

Don't be hatin', as the kids say.

Keep coming back, do ya?

I think players bio would be more helpful in this instance than common sence.

In any case, if you didn't say recently, let's go into the past. Now the only website that's available to me that keeps track of fights, goes back only as far as 97-98. In that year, Mccabe had 13 fights. From 97-98 to 03-04, Mccabe has averaged 5.5 fights/season. Hardly a guy that won't back up his grit with fighting, wouldn't you say?

So, is McCabe a dirty player? I would say yes, he's an example of what shouldn't be allowed in this league.
Nothing wrong with clearing the crease, even if you push the rules and if Briere doesn't like it, he shouldn't be there. If it's worthy of a penalty the ref should call it. I agree with the Koivu hit though, but that's an entirely different animal. Completely different context and timing.

I don't think he's a dirty player per se. Just a very good player, who occassionally does dirty things. There are far worse offenders in the NHL.

There's hundreds of dirty players in the NHL, why center out just McCabe, who isn't even that dirty at all.

Honestly, I've never liked McCabe. Even when he played for the Canucks I didn't like him..

Hey, I expect childish comments from most but not from a former admin.
