The Latest On McCabe

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Now that the Florida Panthers shipped veteran winger Cory Stillman to the Carolina Hurricanes, will Bryan McCabe be next?

The veteran defenseman, one of the bigger rental names left on the market, has a no-movement clause and was still pondering his future Thursday.

“There’s lots of things for him to consider, including staying in Florida and completing the season there and then deciding what their next steps are [in the summer],” McCabe’s agent, Ian Pulver, told ESPN.com on Thursday. “Or he can waive [the clause] to a team where he feels comfortable to finish the season off and possibly laying down roots in the future. So right now that’s what he’s considering.”

McCabe is earning $4.15 million this season, but the cap hit this year is $5.75 million. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The New York Rangers are still believed to be the front-runners if the price is right and McCabe wants to waive.
