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.
