Florida Panthers

Van Ryn looking good; Zednik heading to Toronto?

From George Richards of the Miami Herald:

Know this though: Ryno’s shot looks pretty good. He was ripping off some pretty nice wrist shots, and it looks like this last surgery took. “I told you,” he said. “My wrists feel great. I’m back to normal.” A lot of the guys were joking that the trade may be off, since JM was watching from above as Ryno was scoring on whomever was in net — including Tomas Vokoun and some guy named Luongo.

Other players in attendance the day I was there: Wade Belak (“shoulder feels good, I’ll be ready for camp.”), Nathan Horton, Anthony Stewart, Bryan Allen, Vokoun and MVR. Guys are trickling in as the summer shortens.

— Have heard Richard Zednik’s name tossed about as being possibly traded to Toronto along with MVR. Have not been able to confirm this in anyway shape or form, but this wouldn’t surprise me. As much as the Panthers like Zednik, there is a thought there that once he comes back his past injury is going to be a distraction. And it will be.

Not sure why the Leafs would want Zednik.  Van Ryn is a fine replacement for McCabe but Zednik really doesn’t make sense for the Leafs.  The team should be looking to add younger players/draft picks, not more veterans to the mix.
