Career: McLean hit a career high in goals (15) and +/- (+8). This was also the first time McLean has played consecutive seasons in the same city since 1998.



Report: A nice, consistent season for McLean...Decent – but not great – at many facets of the game...Passes well and works okay in the cycle game...Not a physical presence at all (12 hits)...Rather Klee-esque on the powerplay, with just 1 assist in 86 minutes of ice time...Didn't play very well defensively at even strength...However, did well on the PK, and his ice time on the kill increased as the season wore on...50% on faceoffs – 2nd best on a lousy faceoff team...Bottom line: a good role player who can help out in a lot of situations, but doesn't really excel at any one thing.



Fast Fact: 12 of McLean's 15 goals came on the road.



2007-2007 Salary: $750,000


2007-2008 Status: UFA



Outlook: McLean has done a great job the last two seasons as a relatively inexpensive option while the team transitioned into the salary cap era. He was a good depth player to have around, but with the young talent on the team and the anticipation of one or two more talented forwards joining the team this summer, I assume McLean's time with us is over.
