According to Darren Dreger we should all be expecting Nikolai Khabibulin to be moved before training camp. He went onto say that while Tallon has no immediate issues with moving the veteran goaltender it could create some cap issues in the future.
So this is the very latest that I have on the Bryan McCabe situation! When the rumor 1st came out about this GM Fletcher and Bryan McCabes agent Ian Pulver denied it now after a few weeks of waiting they now have no comment. When reporters spoke with GM Martin he also had no comment.
Today I am hearing that the deal is being finished and could be announced after this weekend the players involved from a media standpoint:
To Toronto: Mike Van Ryn, Richard Zednik
To Florida: Bryan McCabe, Unkonwn prospect or player as of yet?
While this is purely a salary dump for both teams the Leafs win as they will save roughly 1.5 million dollars on this years cap. Anyways things should get interesting in the next couple days.
