From TSN :

"While a number of clubs made offers to trade for Tomas, none of them reflected Tomas's value to our team," Leafs general manager Brian Burke said in a statement. "I understand a period like this is stressful to the player, and we are pleased that there is a resolution, and we can all continue to prepare for the coming season."

I think Grabovski is still being shopped around. The defense is stellar. No reason to trade Bauchemin or Komisarek. Burke seems to like Schenn. The defense situation will be interesting. Burke seems to be looking for a top 6 forward with a bit of an edge, and that's what he was after when negotiating a potential Kaberle deal.

This protracted saga is the number one reason I thank God the Burke isn't our GM. Imagine Kenny pulling this kind of crap with, say, Franzen? Never happen in a million years. Kaberle doesn't deserve the soap opera Burke and the Toronto media are putting him through.

And when Yzerman offers him Malone for Kaberle around New Years, what does Burke say?

I'm pretty shocked he wasn't traded actually. I think Burke dropped the ball, he gambled at high stakes, lost, and now he has to try and save face.

Kaberle could walk at the end of the season for nothing (and I think that's more likely than him re-signing). Hopefully T-Kabs OK's a deadline deal, signs an extension (which would require someone like Komisarek be moved you would think) or it's going to hit the fan in Leaf Nation.


Kaberle will likely walk because Burke continues to overrate the guy and will not get a serious trade done with what he is asking for. No GM in his right mind will trade for Kaberle and give up the assets Burke wants for him.

I'm not sure that he wanted another "legacy deal"; he just wanted more than what was being offered.

Is Marc Savard still available?

Kaberle for Savard is probably Burke's best option.

I'm not sure that he wanted another "legacy deal"; he just wanted more than what was being offered.

This.

Who knows what Burke was offered by rival GMs.

I don't think it's Burke that's making alot outta this...I'm certain the Toronto media is blowing this up outta proportion...Burke is doing what he's done in the past - answering questions in a direct/blunt fashion.

This protracted saga is the number one reason I thank God the Burke isn't our GM. Imagine Kenny pulling this kind of crap with, say, Franzen? Never happen in a million years. Kaberle doesn't deserve the soap opera Burke and the Toronto media are putting him through.

I honestly believe the fault lies more with the media than upon Burke.

The only player with a pulse being offered (that I had read) was Devin Setoguchi in San Jose. Burke really was interested in something in Anaheim. Maybe he's not sure that the Kessel deal was the right deal to make.

From Toronto Sun :

Tomas Kaberle’s weird relationship with the Toronto Maple Leafs may be about to take another severe turn.

This time, it may be Kaberle, himself, who quietly asks for a trade.

Kaberle’s father, Frantisek, told Czech hockey magazine Hokej this week that he’s surprised his son remains a Leaf — especially considering his strained relationship with Toronto coach Ron Wilson.

“I cannot imagine how he will get along with coach Wilson, who relies primarily on aggression and stress,” Frantisek Kaberle Sr., a former member of the Czech national team, himself, told the magazine.

“That’s not Thomas, he’s a technical type of defender.”

The drama will never end until he's out of Toronto. I think Burke is trying to package him and Grabovski to get a power forward..

If you're Burke, you could probably sell that as a good deal in Toronto if the Leafs ended up getting a first round pick the other way, even if you had to give up a third rounder to get it. I guess he thinks the other GMs are as dumb as Sutters when it comes to giving up assets.

Fixed. Seriously, is there anyone who didn't predict that Kesler trade to be epic fail?

Why does Burke refuse to build his team up through the draft instead of trades?

The Leafs fan base is sick of losing. They want to win NOW, not a few years down the road... maybe.

You mean Kessel. If they could trade Kessel for Kesler straight up it would be a huge win for the Leafs.
