Leafs officially trade McCabe to Panthers
It's official, McCabe heads south along with the Leafs 4th rounder in 2010 for d-man Mike Van Ryn.
The long rumoured deal was held up while the Panthers waited for the Leafs to pay a $2 million bonus due to McCabe on Sept. 1.
McCabe will join his best buddy Wade Belak in Florida so he should feel no pressure this season far from the Toronto media circus, expect good numbers from him. Van Ryn will have to battle for a roster spot during training camp.
