Given what Detroit would have to give up for this trade to go through - me no likey.

If we didnt have to give up anything except picks, and its a cap dump for the Leafs, do you like it? Meaning do you think he could be an asset to the team? I agree that he could easily be a 50-60pt guy on the Wings because he is dying in Toronto.

Sure but given that he's UFA after next season it's always going to be awkward unless Detroit only gives up very little. And the Leafs will most likely ask for prospects not just picks given that Detroit's picks aren't very high up the charts so to speak.

But yeah if a deal could be made where Detroit wouldn't have to give up much then sure I'd like the guy. Not looking for someone who can replace Lidström just someone who can get the job done and Kaberle could be that guy.

Sooo give up Stuart or Kronner for Kaberle and pretty much surrender ANY toughness in the defensive zone....

I think it's not so easy now to say what play Kaberle will be able to make next season, if RW sign him. The only NHL team he played for is Maple Leafs. What could he show in WC and especcialy in WC playoffs? I don't know....
His salary is 4.25. I believe there are some other good attacking defensmen in 4-5 scope, who could replace Nick.

In a heartbeat. Maybe Burke wants to have another American defenceman on his team. Rafalski might waive to go play for team America in Toronto.

Old thread, but I would really love to see that.

I really like Kaberle.

An excellent puck moving dman at an incredible price, what is there to complain about?

I thought he would be gone already , but it looks like Burkie is playing hard ball.

well, here we go again. looks like he is willing to waive his ntc, now if we could get him here for the post season, would he
help tighten up our D or do we go gun-ho and try to win every game in high scoring shoot out!!

Does he have a strong preference to play the left side?

I just don't see it. We need a defensive defensman. He's great offensively, but he's the worst starting DMan on the Leafs, and second worst overal, just ahead of Lebda. No thanks.

Kaberle is third on the Leafs in blocked shots and fifth (second among defensemen) in takeways.

And this is without playing the PK because the Leafs need to have him out there for 4:29 of PP time per game.

Kaberle is like Mike Green without the offensive skills. No thanks. Especially for what he'll cost.


This. Not keen on Kabs either. Highly doubtful that he's on Kenny's radar...
