NHL and hockey rumors for Sept 2, 2008

According to TSN, the anticipated trade of Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Bryan McCabe to the Florida Panthers will be finalized tomorrow (Tuesday). The Leafs will pay the $2 million bonus owed to McCabe, and will be promptly traded along with a draft pick (2nd round) for defenseman Mike Van Ryn. Brochu's take: This long protracted saga is finally over. Look for McCabe to bounce back to his 50 point self, while Van Ryn will flourish in his new surroundings.

The New York Post is reporting that free agent forward Brendan Shanahan could be joining the Anaheim Ducks. However, rumors are circulating that he is waiting if the Mats Sundin will sign with the New York Rangers, and will base his decision on Mats' choice. Brochu's take: So now Shanahan is waiting for Mats Sundin's decision? Who else, the Pope?
