Sundin To Rangers Being Denied! McCabe still being denied!


According to a source of mine and Spector the TFP rumor is completley false. Mats has not signed and has not even decided to play.

The source went on to say that while the Rangers are leading the way for Sundin they have to much cap space to clear and Mats wants to sign before the opening of training camp. There are rumors that the Rangers would be moving Micheal Roszival and his brand new $5,000,000 contract but that would make the Blueshirts very thin on the blueline.

(The Sources take: While I'm sure Mats has interest in the Rangers I believe they will have difficulty finding any takers for Roszivals massive contract. I fully believe that the Leafs, Canadiens, and Canucks out of the race for Mats services)

In other news the rumors of a Bryan McCabe trade continue to be denied by GM Fletcher and McCabes agent. But when GM Martin was approached for comment he didn't confirm or deny so things are up in the air right now.

(The Sources take: I don't think the Leafs wanted this to get out but I'm sure that they are glad that it is now as this may drive up McCabes value. There are plenty of teams looking for a PP specialist and McCabe fits at least that bill so I fully expect him to still be traded despite what Fletcher and McCabes agent say.)

Send Mccabe's ass to Philly with Poni for Hartnell and Upshall. Makes a lot more sense then Florida for Van Ryn.

How on earth can you fully believe that the Leafs, Habs and Nucks are out of the race? Every day the story from someone's "source" totally changes!! Give me a break.

Well, if it isn't Vancouver, Montreal or Toronto, who the hell is it?

Sundin has already said he refuses to play in the States. What reason would he have to go to New York? To get offered 6 million less than Montreal to have just as good a chance at a cup?

Think about these things...

Bill Waters, who is a wind bag, said he thinks that it will be mccabe and a prospect to Florida for just Van Ryn. I know this is for salary purposes , but if this trade lands like this , it's horrible for Toronto. Mccabe is a much better player then Van Ryn, and not to land back any youth or picks is really a huge step back for Toronto.

I completely agree the leafs would be getting totally screwed over on that one.

Especially if its for any prospect of worth.

The idea that the Rangers are in the front for Sundin's services are completely absurd. First, the rangers would have to practically dismantle their team to make room for him, or either Gomez or Drury because Sundin is NOT going to want to be the third line center. Secondly, even Slats isn't stupid enough to lose either of those two that he's got signed for several years for an guy for ONE year.

If you guys are going to make up FALSE rumours, at least make them plausible.

UGH!! when will this be over? I hope he signs soon...so that all the teams can move on etc. He would be great on the Habs, but he needs to make a decision either way.

i would love it if mccabe came to the island leafs would be happy if they got freddy meyer and andy hilbert and a 3rd and 6th for mccabe and a 4th and imo that would be fair

To the person who said that we make up rumors you need to learn to read. (And Add!) I said that the chances of the Rangers getting Sundin were small just not in those words. Also I said that the rumored player leaving would be Michael Roszival who makes $5,000,000 the Rangers have $2,000,000 in space do the math genious.

hey, if the leafs dump mccabe and another player (steen/poni) for van ryn, that's leaves us with the cap space to sign another top d and may'be a forward......Roszival would be wicked on the Kaberle / Kubina line as an alternate....if Sundin is really going to NY...i would give away a pick too.....sweetening the pot.

i like rumors....it gets my mind thinking on how wicked or crappy the roster would look like next year....

Keep it up guys....

ps.....TO should try and trade McCabe to Philly....could get a nice centre or star forward....if the Florida talks don't pan out...would make sense.

But you think McCabe's value will be going up? How would it? I'm still new to the trading game.
