from TSN, Sources say defenceman Bryan McCabe, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday, has informed the NHL club he is accepting the five-year deal worh $5.75 million a year that was essentially negotiated a few weeks ago.
McCabe had told the Leafs he needed some more time to settle some personal matters before making the commitment. The Leafs gave McCabe a deadline of Thursday to let them know whether he would accept the offer or not and sources says the Leafs received that commitment today.
A formal announcement is expected in the next day or two.
Update on hosting issue- I am still experiencing slow access to KK and about 10% of KK readers are too. Hopefully this will be addressed tonight by my hosting company. A full explanation is down a few posts.
