-Kaberle is absolutely what we do not need. We have a team of passers, no shooters. Kaberle is a QB just like Markov, what do you want them to do? Pass it back and forth to eachother until the goalie gets bored?
-he is NOT a physical or gritty defender which is what we would need
-doesnt have a great shot
In saying that he is a great player, but he does not fill the needs the habs need right now.
what could you possibly discuss?
not every available player should be traded to the habs
Well I'm not adding fuel to the fire or trying to back up Eklund, but Gainey offer Grabovski, Higgins and a 1st last year for Sundin so why would you say they wouldn't be trading partners?
Vancouver and Anaheim have done it, Flyers have done it with rivals like Washington so it has been done and it does take place.
I'm sure if Gainey could use Kaberle to get Vinnie, or to trade another asset on his team to get Vinnie to replace that said asset he would.
This deal is out there, but not totally out of reality.
