Report: NYR send Tim Kennedy and 3rd rounder for Bryan McCabe

 

                Team has not confirmed deal with Florida just yet, but TSN is reporting it. Fair deal for Rangers.

                McCabe, 35, the former Islanders d-man, waived his no-trade clause to come back to New York. He is an unrestricted free agent.

                Kennedy, a center who was with the Sabres last season, was playing in the AHL. The third-rounder is for this year's draft.  

               Could be another deal coming. Rangers will have eight D on roster.

                Kennedy, 24, had 12 goals and 40 points for Connecticut Whale.

                Why is this a good price for NY? McCabe may not be the player he once was, but is a lefty, which the Rangers can use, competes and there's no long-term committment. Compare this to Tomas Kaberle deal: Prospect Joe Colborne, a 2011 1st rounder and a conditional 2nd rounder in 2012.
