Even though Markov would defray the otherwise huge cost for Lecavalier, Kaberle would cost a small fortune, and I'm not sure that the Habs have enough in the treasury to make both trades, at least not without dipping into the gold reserves by giving away Pacioretty, McDonagh, Subban.
It would be nice to see an old fashioned hockey trade for a change.
Well maybe, like I've suggested before, they are getting it wrong and it is Kaberle who will go to Tampa Bay if he agrees prior to being traded to the Habs. If Tampa are looking for a #1 D, why not offer them Kaberle. He costs less than Markov too, so it fits with their financial problems.
