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.

Now that McCabe has been traded, Sundin will resign with Toronto. The Leafs couldn't sign him until the McCabe deal was official because McCabe would probably have used his NMC to stay in TO. Sundin will be a Leaf in the next week or two.

I agree with you partially.. It's TO or retirement and I don't think he'll be laced up come faceoff opening night.. He will take his time to get in shape..

Toronto isn't done either. Way too many defensemen on board, not enough forwards. Would TB be willing to tarde Jokinen? I'm pretty sure....

By the way this trade proves to everyone that this site is full of crap. All the names tossed around were crap and nobody here has any inside info at all.

It was a great trade in my opinion and it was something the Leafs needed to do. I'm sure another move is in the works for a forward.

Do u have any actual information or are u sure like we are going to land Bouwmeester sure

The Source said...

I've got nothing right now to tell you the truth. As for the Bouwmeester thing I never said it was going to happen I said it was a rumor.

Thats it thats all!

I am sure one of the people here saying you guys have no sources is Eklund, now that is a guy with absolutely NO sources LOL!

yeah looks as tho that Bouwmeester stuff didnt go the way you guys thought.

I can see TO dealing Van Ryn

I am convinced Eklund is fraud, plain and simple.

He doesn't break anything. His rumors are ridiculous and he doesn't even follow up on his own BS.
