Some rumors: Toronto, Montreal, NYR, Florida

Sundin possibly to Montreal, New York; Maple Leafs may target Bouwmeester or Weiss

If you’re like me, you’re probably starving for fresh new trade rumors.  Well here are the latest I managed to dig up.

New Development On McCabe Story

According to Nik Kypreos of Sportsnet (http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/2008/08/13/mccabe_trade_clause/), McCabe has rescinded his NMC to possibly move to the Panthers.

mikster’s note: I’ve commented around (HTR, Panthershockey.net, McKeen’sHockey Boards) that Bryan McCabe would be the ideal target for the Panthers and that the Panthers would be his ideal target as well. I know for a fact that he has good friendly connections here in South Florida, one a retired player and the other an active player. While I would like to share information with my fellow hockey fans on HTR.com, I am not a rumor monger and I respect information given to me.

If I were you, I’d expect to see McCabe come to Florida, but don’t cout on Jay Bouwmeester heading the other way. It may very well be either Van Ryn or Cory Murphy heading to Toronto in the deal, with Peltonen.
