Believe it or not, I'm very happy about this

TSN is reporting that Bryan McCabe has accepted the Maple Leaf's contract of 5 years/$28.75 million.

Why am I happy? There was word JFJ was going to heavily target Zdeno Chara if he couldn't get McCabe locked up.

As much as I don't want Chara back in Ottawa at the price he's apparently asking for, chomping up that much of the payroll, the idea of him in Toronto and us having to face him at least eight times a season had me concerned.

So phewf.
