Big Trade in the Eastern Conference! NYR - FLA

Bryan McCabe is now a member of the Blueshirts! The NY Rangers picked him up from the FLA Panthers in exchange for Tim Kennedy and a 3rd round pick in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft. Wow, I am completely surprised that McCabe went for that poor of a return. Kennedy is a decent depth forward, but McCabe is the sort of player who can anchor a top defensive pairing on most teams in the NHL. I think the fact that McCabe is set to become and unrestricted free agent, as well as the fact that he has a no-trade-clause (that he would only waive for a few teams) lowered his trade value significantly.
