Oh man! ZEDNIK and Van Ryn is a fare price for McCabe!!! I was wishing some other cool player moving with Mike ( You know that everybody wanna be like Mike )

This is a deep move for Toronto. I now like it. Z can teach some cool moves for those young, fresh and fast new Torontonians. This is so much fun!!!

Zeddy back in the Northeast? Great to see him survive that awful throat slash thing but he ain't such a hot scorer anymore. He'll chip in 15-20 at best but will show flashes of brilliance. Leaf fans can expect a lot of the trademark Zed moves to make you pull your hair out: always going five hole on a breakaway and not scoring, cutting to the outside and ragging the puck with one hand on the stick until he runs out of room (never going to the net) and a notoriously weak shot. Still, good quality to get by trading McCabe. That's of course if this all shakes down.

Why would Florida trade Zednik? him returning this year would be a great feel good story down there. Do they have much else to look forward to?

If the aforementioned Zednik + Van Ryn for McCabe is true, I am pretty disappointed as a Leafs fan. The Leafs are loaded on D as it is right now. Adding Van Ryn will just continue the logjam. Also, adding Zednik will just take away opportunity from some of the young guys. The only way I can see this working for the Leafs is if they send Tlusty and Kulemin to the AHL, ride Zednik on the top line so he accumulates decent stats, then flip him for a decent pick later in the season. Adding Van Ryn is okay because he is relatively young with decent upside, but Zednik does not fit at all with the Leafs at this stage in his career.

edit: Sending Ian White to the Marlies or trading him would also make this move a lot more logical.

Just saying at 1.6mil he's a decent guy to have around. After what he's gone through why dump him?

Feel-good or a big distraction. At first, it'll be pretty much a feel good story, later in the season as they go out West more, they'll still be asked about it when the team's ready to move on.

I'm not saying to move Zednik, just that it's going to keep coming up.

van ryn will likely be dealt elsewhere if mccabe is moved, theres no room for him on the team

also, zednik might get good minutes and have a career year this year...or at least enough to get us a decent return at the deadline


combine the picks combined from van ryn and zednik re-trades and we might get a more palatable return for mccabe. the optics here just suck, but in the end it'll be alright.

Exactly. I'm fairly confident that, whatever happens, the Leafs are going to come out of this stronger.

My prediction is that, when the trade goes down, Leaf fans as a whole will be real pissed off because McCabe won't bring back much value. BUT, a year from now, Fletcher will have turned the payroll room into a good UFA signing, and will have used the assets in the trade to get some good midround picks.

Toronto will wind up winning in this situation, one way or the other.

Trust me Panther fans. McCabe for Van Ryn = You guys winning this trade.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least. All that to ge rid of a bad contract while picking up another bad contract? I totally believe it.

No way Zednik is part of this trade, as someone already mentioned. His return will be one of the few things that might fill the building all season. McCabe won't.

What the hell is he thinking????

McCabe (w/ Salary included) for Van Ryn straight up alone has Florida winning this one.

Why are we including a pick when we don't even have a 2nd rounder till 2010????

I hope to god Dreger or McKenzie is wrong about this report for once.

Oh we know. Ryno's healthy, though, and during practice (they're still trying to stop the puck) at Incredible Ice he's firing the puck past Luongo and Vokoun. You guys aren't getting some slouch. As much as I'm exciting about having McCabe, I'm pretty disappointed to be losing a healthy Ryno.

I don't understand why they're trading for another defenseman. I may be wrong, but they're OK on that position for now.

If there's one bright spot that the Leaf have currently, it's their defence.

Fletch is adamant that McCabe doesn't return thus effecting his true market value and limits our potential suitors for him as McCabe has both a NMC and NTC.

Distraction. There was an article recently about how everywhere the Panthers go there are going to be questions from the media and spotlights on what happened. They may think it's best for both parties to move on from what happened.

Zeds has a horrendous 1st half of the season for us but really tore it up until the skate incident. I wish him the best...

Geez, hope McCabe has 30 goals in him b/c who is gonna score for Florida?!?
