Van Ryn tossed into trade talk

There has been no confirmation that defenceman Mike Van Ryn is a player the Toronto Maple Leafs would receive from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Bryan McCabe, but all signs point in that direction.

Those close to the 29-year-old say he believes Panthers general manager Jacques Martin wants to move him, and that he expects to be either a player named in a trade for McCabe or shipped to another NHL team.

One source close to Van Ryn said yesterday a trade to Toronto can be considered only "a possibility" at this point.

Martin would not comment on the matter.
