Who made up the rumor of trading Mats Sundin! 17 POINTS IN HIS LAST 11 GAMES!(<<

He told them that he has thought ’bout it in the past, but is set to stay cuz he wants to win a Stanley in Toronto(When he won the Gold Medal in the Olympics he called Tie Domi from the dressing room and said he would trade it all for a Stanley Cup) He is a his franchise center and JFJ wouldn’t dare trade him although at the trade deadline he had been ASKED if he wanted too and turned it down. He ain’t going anywhere andh es not gonna retire either. He has said hes not gonna retire too many times to count and a good player like him re-hitting his form now will probably play to atleast 40 which is 5 years off being 35 now.

Look I am a huge Leafs fan and I love Bryan McCabe and I don’t like how everyone says hes so bad even though he does make a lot of bad plays. Hes one of the leagues top offensive defensemen, but for 5Mil, NO WAY. I have always wondered about this trade: McCabe for maybe a few top defense prospects(We have too many) to Carolina for Frank Kaberle. The Ducks have the Neidermayers, the Canucks have the Sedin twins and the Leafs would have the Kaberles. I doubt this would happebn though cuz Kaberle was Re-signed by Carolina this summer to a 4 year contractm, is injured right now and he is an important part of the Carolina team but througth all that, it would be awesome. Plus Carolina over the last few years has been known to trade a lot! – G

    I've heard NYI is looking for a number 1 defenceman. Zhitnik was struggling with that role, so he was traded and Now GM snow is looking for that number 1 guy. The team has no top end defensive prospects, so they'll need to get a guy through UFA or Trade. Unless they like to go defence by commitee. Anyway, I think Kubina or MCabe would be a good fit there. So,
    Kubina to NYI for a 3rd round pick and prospect Blake Comeau

    McCabe and a defence prospect for F. Kaberle? … um, no.

    lets not do stupid moves just to be cutesy and desperate and have a Kaberle family reunion.

    on another note: a good example of a half-way article: http://www.torontosun.com/Sports/Hockey/2007/01/03/3153508-sun.html

    a terribly poor example and one that shows no sense of the big picture even though it purports to do so: http://www.thestar.com/Sports/article/167356

    the one thing that the latter article completely ignores is that the leafs ARE mroe difficult to play against than last year's squad. its also faster and younger and it takes time to implement the systems Maurice is trying to implement. heck, people, WE HAVE SYSTEMS, ACCOUNTABILITY in T.O. and its about time!!!

    a better article (though still flawed) is the National Post's piece on the Leafs first half: http://www.canada.com/nationalpost/news/sports/story.html?id=76fd7cac-c00f-49d2-a919-74440b928ed5

    I am amazed about the statistic on the leafs 5-on-5 goals for (the leafas are 6th overall this year in that dept). but like the article says, despite paying all that money for their D (McCabe, Kubina, Gill) the leafs have given up way too many goals this year (forwards and inconsistent goaltending blamed too for this).

    in any case, trading McCabe would be great eh? that's 5.75 million of freed cap space, Kubina could fill his role awhile until of IF the leafs look around for someone else.

    but what team would take a the contract that McCabe has? is Garth Snow that dumb of a GM? is Sather? i just dont see that one happening although i would love to see it. Even Kubina I would love to see go … or Gill. but again, there are just not that many dumb GMs out there.

    more likely to be traded is Darcy Tucker. Or even Antropov. you won't get much for the latter and you might get something decent for the former.

    maybe this person doesn't know this but most of us do. i think we're discussing a NY-area team BECAUSE we know of his connections to that area and it might factor into him waiving his no-trade clause.

    BUT, like i said, i dont see McCabe going anywhere until 2011.

  6. PaulK123 says:

     lol, McCabe is staying in TO, if JFJ signed him to that kind of deal he has no intentions of moving him at all.

  7. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    He has a no trade clause… sucks, don't it?

  8. tucksfan says:

    i wouldnt trade cabber even if he didnt have a no trade clause cuz when he wants to he is the best offensive d in the game. i would trade kubinas salary for some talent down the middle

  9. leafmeister says:

    If Mccabe dropped his no trade clause Edmonton would pounce on those deals like a panther. We could get Lupul or Sykora. Or we could get Jason Smith.

  10. tucksfan says:

    we could probly get those players for kubina too excluding sykora

  11. koolcracker says:

    Exactly, I believe if McCabe was going to waive it, it would be for the islanders. They have alot of young guys down there, id take one.

  12. koolcracker says:

    I don't see why you'd rather Kubina go before McCabe. Kubina costs less and is more responsible.

  13. mojo19 says:

    McCabes wife is also from Long Island, which would suggest he'd be more likely to waive the no trade clause for New York over most other teams.

  14. mojo19 says:

    I would trade McCabe straight up for Frantisek Kaberle in a heart beat.

  15. mojo19 says:

    Kubina is a more valuable defensman than McCabe and costs less.
