McCabe Next On List?

The Toronto Sun is reporting that after the Leafs have signed defenseman Tomas Kaberle to a 5-year, 21.25 million dollar deal, one defenseman is on the Ferguson’s mind right now and that is Bryan McCabe.

“We have had preliminary talks with the Leafs and agreed to resume them at a later date,” McCabe’s agent, Jeff Solomon, told the Sun. “That in itself shows the team has interest.”

Leafs GM John Ferguson Jr. would like to re-sign

Bryan McCabe before the season is over.

“They both continue to demonstrate their worth to this club on and off the ice and we’ve got a plan in place that includes them both,” Ferguson told the paper. “Without getting into any specifics on any particular negotiations, Bryan continues to demonstrate his contribution to our club.”

McCabe is on pace for 79 points, and is earning 3.498 million dollars.

“I love it here,” McCabe said. “I’ve had success here. The contract will take care of itself.”
