McCabe?

I know that we went over the topic of having McCabe a while ago, but considering how we've been playing, maybe it'd be worth it if we got him cheap? I'm sure that he wouldn't be the first in-season washed-up UFA pickup by a team that ends up helping the team down the line.

After last night, I think even McCabe could be an upgrade over some players on our D, or at least his presence could wake up Hamonic and AMac? Am I onto something here or am I just crazy?

Why not? Can't be worse than Staios/Eaton/Jurcina/Mottau... They won't sign him and he won't sign with this mess...

Yeah because Detroit and Pittsburgh desperately need Brian Rolston

yeahh because I specifically said Rolston.......


Staios has looked good so for depth......

Mottau for depth

Eaton a SC winner for bottom pair depth.....

Reasoner 4th line for depth....


Pandolfo 4th line for depth and has actually been really good on the PK...

Then by them leaving some spots open some kids can get a taste of the Show...

Wang won't spend a dime beyond what he has to.

Take that to the bank.

Unless the Isles D gets swept up in a Tsunami, no help other than from within will be happening. (We all know Snow won't make a deal so that rules out an equal dollar amount deal as well).

No real interest but it's amazing that Hamonic, AMAC, Jurcina, Eaton and Mottau have a combined 4 points.
