- The Beginning: On March 5, 2003 McCauley was dealt from Toronto to San Jose along with Brad Boyes and the Leafs number one pick in the 2003 draft, for Owen Nolan.
- The End: McCauley enjoyed his most productive NHL season with the Sharks the following season, with 47 points in 82 games. After a second full season with the Sharks where his numbers declined a bit, McCauley was an unrestricted free agent and signed with Los Angeles. McCauley would play only 10 games with the Kings before a knee injury ultimately forced him to retire from hockey.
- Leaf Connection: Alyn played a total of 304 games for the Leafs across six seasons, from 1997 to 2003. Mostly buried on the depth chart, his strongest play for the team came in the 2001/02 playoffs when he produced 15 points in 20 games picking up the slack for an injured Mats Sundin. His point totals in those playoffs (15) were just one shy of the 16 he picked up in 82 regular season games.
- The Jersey: The Sharks originally introduced this style of jersey during the 1997/98 season as an alternate. It became the primary dark style the following season, and remained so until the conclusion of the 2006/07 season.
- The Wear: Faded stick marks, a couple of unrepaired holes.
- The Season: 2003/04 was McCauley's most productive NHL season as he played in all 82 games, scored 20 goals and added 27 assists, which was fourth best on the Sharks. In 11 playoff games he added 2 goals and 1 assist. Overall the Sharks went 43-21-12-6 which was the best record in the Pacific Division. The team made the Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history, ultimately losing to the Flames in six games.
