The Untouchables

By The Meatriarchy

According to the Star here are the players that won't be dealt at the deadline:

If McCabe does sign, he would be one of seven Leaf untouchables at the deadline, according to sources. That group includes Kyle Wellwood, Alex Steen, Mats Sundin, Alex Ponikarovsky, Darcy Tucker and Kaberle.

That was the last paragraph from an article entitled "Leafs might trade McCabe" The Star looked at McCabe, realized he is a free agent at the end of the year, assumed he will ask for more money than the Leafs can pay and came to the conclusion that he might be traded.

Logical. In fact most Leaf fans continually look at their team and make assumptions as to who might be likely to be moved based on criteria similar to that.

Except when Leaf fans do it the local sports media calls them idiots. When reporters for the Star do it, it makes the front page of the sports section.

  1. If I were the Leafs, I'd do everything I could to sign McCabe. Otherwise you can trade him to the Penguins. We'll give ya Leclair and Recchi for him! You guy's seem to like old players!! HAHAHA

  2. McCabe is not worth $5m/yr. If he takes Kaberle money or less, keep him.

  3. I think he will probably end up getting between 4-4.5

    Remember Matthieu Schneider signed for 3.5 million this year.

    Also there is nothing to prevent Toronto from letting him go and going after Chara or Redden.

  4. I'd let him go for Chara, I'd rather keep him instead of Redden though. Redden is good but McCabe has all the points and at least some defensive skill.
