McCabe trade confirmed but return is sketchy.












So earlier I reported that the players in the McCabe trade had been confirmed to be David Booth and Mike Van Ryn. While the Booth and Van Ryn part are still there, there's others being mentioned.

Speculation is beginning to rear its ugly head again as there are now several more players being named.

On Torontos end: Nik Antropov, Alex Steen, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Bryan McCabe.

On Floridas end: Mike Van Ryn, Anthony Stewart, David Booth, Stephen Weiss.

There are picks involved including Floridas 1st rounder next year. (I know this sounds crazy but this is what Dreger has said)

Now not all these players will be moving but at least one or more of these players will have new jerseys come Sept 1st. I say that if Antropov is involved there will be that 1st rounder coming the other way as Torontos surprise late bloomer from last season has an all time high trade value right now.

Anyways stay tuned for more.

FLA's 1st rounder.... LOL.

Antropuff, a career 60 pointer, for a pick that could be Tavares?

LOL LOL LOL.

That's even funnier than people believing they could get JBO for McSuck....

LOL,.... even though a rumor is just a rumor, But atleast this one looks good for the leafs , although the 1st rounder is a little over the top.

Bill Watters said he expects the Leafs to send McCabe and a european prospect, no NHL forwards.

Yeah but for what? It has to be more than Van Ryn. People have to realize that Van Ryn is also a salary dump. They are trading Van Ryn for a guy who can play the role better, who is McCabe. So its not Florida necessarily doing the Leafs a favour. If Antropov, or even Steen is involved I can see that 1st round pick.

I cant see any way Florida parts with Booth.

"the bonus has to be paid by Sept 1st. Apparently Sept 1st is a day that is significant to the cap (though I don't know how) - and this has to be paid on or before that day..." a friend told me.....don't know if there's any truth to it.....

In any case, i think the stall isn't the money......he can get that at anytime......just not after the 1st.....waiting to be cheaper and maybe his value goes up....hm! making him more attractive to bigger deals......
