However, his downside (injury-prone, bad attitude, greed, non-existant offense game) keeps GMs away from trading something too valuable for a question mark type of player.]]>
There’s no denying it’s a risk for the team that picks him up, but it could pay off big time. If he can stay healthy you’ve got a great defensive player who is feared around the league. Have you ever seen him fight? Probably not, cause no one will take him on anymore. His first 2 years in the league he beat the hell out of anyone that came near him.
5th on the depth chart? I’m sorry, but I watch every B’s game every year, and when he’s in the lineup and healthy he’s always top 4. They did ease him in when he came back from the pectoral injury, but that’s because they wanted to be careful with him.
Bottom line:Teams don’t want part time players, but McLaren’s just too darn intriguing for most teams to pass up. The B’s will make out nicely in this deal.]]>
