Rivalry with Net
A fierce rivalry was ignited between Bryan McCabe and the net (not to be confused with the empty net) on October 9, 2007, against the Carolina Hurricanes, when the Net viciously cross-checked McCabe as he was coming out from behind the Net. The hit passed a review by NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell, much to his chagrin. Later in the game, McCabe was to throw a warning shot at the Net, barely missing it and partly infuriating but mostly confusing Vesa Toskala.
McCabe would have his revenge six days later while playing for the Sabres. Unsatisfied with giving another brazen warning to the net and scaring the everloving fuck out of Andrew Raycroft, McCabe blasted a wicked clearance into the Net with just 3.6 seconds left in overtime.

What? Oh right, that time when he doesn't take slapshots. Yeah, this is when McCabe prefers to flounder around and hope that Kaberle makes a smooth pass to begin a breakout play.
McCabe as an Olympian
Look, we don't know why this happened or why he wasn't on the main powerplay unit. Let's pretend it never happened.
