McCabe a Panther???
















As 1st reported on HB's by me and Scotty Bryan McCabe has waived NMC to facilitate a trade to the Florida Panthers. Despite what one of my colleagues said this morning there is a chance the return could be D Jay Bouwmeester.

This is what I have been hearing for weeks actually almost a month since Bouwmeester made it clear that he does not wish to return to the sunshine state.

To Toronto: D Jay Bouwmeester, Unnamed Roster Player (Sorry I can't get any word on who this might be)

To Florida: D Bryan McCabe, Alex Steen, Cond Pick in 2010

While it is true that McCabe has waived the players I have in the trade above have not been confirmed as of yet besides McCabe. This could be the "HOMERUN" trade that Fletcher was talking about.

UPDATE: ACCORDING TO SPECTOR AND ONE OF HIS SOURCES FLETCHER HAD DENIED THE WAIVING SAYING HE IS UN-AWARE OF ANY MOVE BEING MADE RIGHT NOW. HE ALSO WENT ON TO SAY THAT THE DEAL MAY NOT HAPPEN UNTIL AFTER THE LEAFS PAY MCCABE THE $2,000,000 SIGNING BONUS THAT THEY OWE HIM.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE!

UnREAL if this is indded the deal.

Fletcher is a god if he makes this trade. I would assume the conditional pick is a first rounder if JB resigns with the Leafs. 2nd rounder is the Habs now and a 3rd just doesn't sound like it's enough.

Holy fuck you got me excited!

If Fletch has pulled this off... he is going to be an absolute saint in TO.

I hope your not yanking our chain throwing Bouwmeester in there!

I said it was unconfirmed as of yet we've been saying this for a while.

I've updated my blog guys!

So this done, imminent or possible?

Scotty said...

Bouwmeester Unlikely To Be In The Deal Sorry guys i heard Mccabe for Van Ryn and Weiss or Van Ryn and Booth either way they get younger

The Source said...

Hey Scotty atleast I would have been right about Booth. I knew that he would have to be part of the deal LOL.

You guys are just guessing... and then you say sorry about it, and now that its out there... you're acting like you knew all along.

Yeah but no matter if it was a fluke or not congats on getting lucky. I see Van Ryn and Booth coming back , it would cost a lot to land Weiss.

I would like to see Weiss come back because he is a Toronto boy... But what happened to the rumors of, McCabe, White/Stralman, Steen, and conditional 1st(2010) for Bouwmeester and booth??? I would do that trade, but would florida?

NOT GETTING JAYBO

krey said...

Ok,,, I have to ask,, Does anyone believe that maybe these rumors are being leeked to get McCabes trade value to go up. Like say three teams are interested in him and there only gonna give up a medium sized return. But if some kind of bidding war gets going then the return gets higher. I know people are going to say its only McCabe, a bag of pucks is worth it. But IMO on the right team and situation McCabe can flurish.

The title change is appreciated.

If by some miracle we landed JBo, we'd have two days to get rid of Kubina- being that we'd still have too many d-0en.

Anonymous said...

we would probably get rid of white/coli/starlman before kubina

Corey said...

our D would look like

Kab/Jbo
Kubina/Finger
Fro/Stralman/White/Coli/Schenn

which is pretty solid

tsn reports that JBo is not involved in the mccabe trade

everybody is reporting that.....nothing different so far....i want Nathan Horton.

Anonymous said...

Won't be Horton , won't be Bo, won't be Weiss unless Steen is involved. Look for Booth coming back and mabye Van Ryn or Skrastins.

Oh, wait. He copied that guy's work.

SteveBeau said...
