Bryan McCabe

Leafs Send Him to Florida

Yesterday the Toronto Maple Leafs finalized the Bryan McCabe trade to Florida.The Leafs had to include a fourth-round draft pick in the 2010 draft, and received defenceman Mike Van Ryn from the Panthers.

For all Leafs fans who were tired to see #24 in the line-up, the trade comes as a relief. But then Damien Cox goes and ruins this moment of jubilation with a column on how the trade was another bad deal made by a Leafs GM.

And I'll go and ruin the jubilation, too: sending McCabe to Florida and adding Van Ryn does not change the Leafs hopes. The Leafs will miss the playoffs again this season. McCabe or not, that wasn't the team's problem.
