Not worth discussing. Ek is an idiot and anything he says won't happen.

Yeah, Tampa just dumped Boyle to get under the cap, so they will trade for a worse defenseman who costs the same amount? Make sense to me!

I wouldn't put it past Tampa, especially if he's someone Melrose has a mancrush on

I guess HB's Toronto page view rate is getting a bit low.

They gave McCabe the NMC......let them suffer with it.

You can pretty much ignore any and all trade rumors that have a defenseman coming to Pittsburgh. We already have two too many.

laughable

Postby Penspal on Thu Aug 07, 2008 8:03 am

Let me start by saying I hate McCabe. I would never want him in a Pens uni.

-He is grossly overpaid.
-In my opinion he does not display good hockey sense.
-He is the king of the highlight reel, but he never has the puck

Having said all that, I think he would benefit greatly by getting out of Toronto (somewhere with much less spotlight) and on a team with a good system.

Pitssburgh has
1. too many "better" defenceman that BM.
2. no room under the cap to cover his salary
3. too much sense to start gambling with defenseman. Its one thing to try out Janne and one a couple of 1yr contracts, but to turn this guy around...no.

After writing all this, I realized that I probably don't need to convince anyone.

Speak up if you woud like to see BM in a Pens jersey? I can't hear you :P

Interesting. What could possibly go on in his head? This one's just intentionally stiring the pot?

Looking at the Pens roster and cap situation McCabe is like the least likely aquasition Shero could possibly make.

Pens' Cap Space = 1.504 mil
McCabe's Cap Hit = 5.75 mil
(source: NHLnumbers.com)
_________________________

My math says that would put the Pens 4.26 mil over the cap. Even if Sydor was moved, who I'd take over McCabe right now, that is still 1.7 mil over the cap.

Eklund, you sir are an idiot!

I'm starting to think that Eklund includes the Penguins in just about every rumor that he makes up because he knows that Penguins fans will at least discuss it and thus give him even more publicity.

Yeah, he probably does that specifically for penguins fans, I'm sure the markets in Canada with more people who care more about hockey don't talk about rumors nearly as much as penguins fans...

Here's a question- we all agree Eklund has less credibility than Kovy27 has worthwhile posts, right? Then why do people still post his rumors when we know they're crap?
