McCabe to Lightning?

While in the last few weeks its been rumored that Kubina was the one on his way out of town it now seems plausible that Brian McCabe is moving on. Despite he and his agent denying that he wants to leave via trade Cliff Fletcher has made it very much known that McCabe is not longer welcome in T.O. and would like him to move on.

My sources are confirming that many teams have interest and that the Lightning are trying to package both Halpern and Jokinnen in a deal for the Dmans services. The reason being that the salaries would have to be moved in order to accommodate McCabes salary.

Brian makes 5.75 and Halpern makes 2 mill while Jokinnen gets 1.8 million so the salary swap works perfectly.

I would expect that McCabe might agree to this trade as his longtime friend Gary Roberts is there and might convince him to waive. Anyways I will be back with more as soon as I can things like I said last weekend are getting busy and the longer Sundin takes the more likely teams are to make some moves.

everyone's favourite rumor monger has said that in 15 days there could be that homerun trade, that Cliff had previously mentioned.

T.S - can you explain how with works perfectly? There is a difference of 2 million.

I meant that with what the Lightning have left they could take on McCabes salary and by trading Jokinnen and Halpern.

Sorry I should have been more clear on what I was trying to get across I appologize.

man, you're crazy if you think that mccabe would go to tampa from toronto.

mccabe has strong player's association ties and after the way tampa dealt with dan boyle, you'd have to be a lunatic to think that brian would play in tampa after his treatment in toronto.
