McCabe's Reluctance

leafsRemember a few weeks ago when we all read and heard about the Bryan McCabe signing? I interpreted it as a done deal as it was widely reported as a done deal. There may have been a gentleman's agreement between McCabe and Feguson, but nothing has been signed.

In today's Globe, David Shoalts has a suggestion I agree with. I'd link to the article, but the Globe has this one under lock and key. Here's what he wrote.

What Feguson should do now is turn McCabe's reluctance - and what else can his silence be interpreted as? - against him and withdraw the contract offer. Then, he can turn his attention to signing one of the big three pending free agent defencemen - Wade Redden and Zdeno Chara of the Ottawa Senators and Ed Jovanovski of the Vancouver Canucks.

Let's face it Leaf fans, McCabe ain't worth $29 million over five years. His second half last year was a major let down and he's nothing more than a power point specialist. That's worth something, but $29 million? I'll take Redden and Jay McKee instead. Clearly McCabe doesn't want to play here.
