While in all likelihood this will happen. the NHL article distinctly says "McCabe to NYR?"

the question mark is rather key at this point..

This would be a huge mistake. Don't trade anything of value for this guy. He's having a terrible season, can't really play defense, and hasn't been in the playoffs in 7 years..

Over an 82 game schedule he would have scored 35 or so points on a team that is TERRIBLE.

He is a +3 on a team that is a -11 overall while playing 21 minutes a night on a team that is TERRIBLE.

He is the captain, and leader of an NHL team.

He has experience in the NHL playoffs and regular season.

He has a lot of experience on, and running an NHL power play.

Has he lost a step? Maybe.

Was he ever a defensive stalwart? No.

Is he a significant upgrade over Gilroy or MDZ? Hell yeah.

Hopefully he's making his debut in blue when I'm at the game tomorrow, he's surely an upgrade over gilroy,also MDZ at this point and maybe eminger.

No problem with the idea of acquiring him. All depends on the price. If it's true that he would only waive his NMC for the Rangers, that's fantastic, because all the leverage is Sather's.

Would think a second round pick should be enough to get it done, but I'm wary of the idea of that. This team isn't a Brian McCabe away from being a Cup contender, and have gotten value out of 2nd round lately. I'd be thrilled with the package being Gilroy and a later pick, but I can't imagine Gilroy has all that much value, considering his age and, uh, suckiness.

I'm Ron Burgundy?

Gotta wonder how long Staal is out for in this case.

Misleading thread title much?

If and when a trade actually goes down, we can start a new thread on it. Only then.

Use the Trade Deadline Thread until then.

This was deleted for a reason the first time. Please use the trade speculation thread. McCabe rumors have been discussed for several weeks now.
