In Topic: Is the Kaberle Saga Over?

He's an RFA, so it's not his choice, all Nashville has to do is match any offer... and I can't see Nashville signing a 1 year deal either because of how valuable he is and any arbitrator would award at least 2 years...

EDIT - Plus, he's gone on record saying how much he loves the city and the team... he will most likely be a Predator for his career



Anybody can say they love a city or team...having said that...you are correct on Nashville having to match any offer. With Nashville sitting on approx $28mil and their off season UFA and RFA they may spend that money to sign them AND to get some talent in Nashville. They need to dump Erat, which is taking up $5.5mil and he's not worth all that. Nashville has some interesting moves to make this summer.

Krejci and Wheeler are the most likely guys to be moved. They're both young and have upside which makes them of the most interest to teams like Toronto.

Given how rough Krejci's year was last year I wouldn't be surprised to see him go (although I'd feel the same way as you if I were a Bruins fan).



Ya, it's been rumored that Krejci/Wheeler, around here, might be the ones going to the Leafs. I'm not crazy about letting Krejci go, however, Kaberle is a pretty damn good puck moving D-man which can help us out in the back end alot. Not hearing much about "prospects" though...

As long as they have minor league players available, probably not... :lol:


I think there is about a .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% chance that Nashville lets him get away at ANY price...



Weber MIGHT do it if the price and right and I'm sure he is tired of getting bounced in the 1st round.

You guys might want to spend that money on Shea Weber for when he becomes a FA so he can replace Nick when he gets ready to retire. There is THAT rumor going around...

Don't be sad... it might only be for a few months anyway.
Kaberle is a free agent and depending on our Defensemen and their retirement plans... or not.
You could still see him in a Wings uni.



Kaberle has as much of a chance wearing a Wings sweater as Evgeni Nabokov wearing a Wings or Islanders sweater lol. Kaberle's salary would exceed your $2.15mil cap room.
