Hannan and McCabe

Not saying the Flyer should go after them or anything (seeing as we're pretty much boned on all fronts now anyway) but was wondering why you think they haven't gone anywhere yet...

McCabe is old and not great but still seems decent enough. Hannan I've always had a soft spot for (so to speak), he seems to do all the things you want from a defensive Dman, he blocks stuff, hits, creates turnovers, etc, seems like a solid reliable guy...

In fact a McCabe, Hannan pairing seems like it might work fairly well... Just wondered what you thought...

If we didn't waste money on Lijlia(sp)we might have been able to add McCabe for cheap. ****.

Ask Leaf fans what they thought of McCabe in his prime. Put it this way, if you saw him play now and didn't know his name, I think you wouldn't give him a second look. Regardless, unless homer gets rid of a bunch of other contracts we should be safe.

I'd like Hannan, can't afford him though.

A history of injuries and old age?

Don't forget being part of the pairing (Lilja-Lebda) that makes you think, "Wait, a team won the Cup with those guys?"

In terms of their cap numbers for next year, somewhere in between Bryan McCabe and Andreas Lilja is Matt Walker. Pick one.

How about 2 of them go away and the other stays away?

It's a bit strange that Hannan hasn't found a place yet. He might not be worth what he got on the last contract, but a veteran stay-at-home d that can play around 20 minutes... there should be a few teams out there looking to add someone like him.
