Next year, Axe, Manny, TT JR, Hnidy, Yelle, and I believe we are paying for AA, but of not all names come off the payroll as UFAs. Not to mention RFA's Kess, Krejci, Bitz, Karsums, St Pierre, Lash, Hunwick and Regan. Quick math makes that about 16 MIL gone at years end. Done say BOS can not afford him when CLEARLY they can.

Not that a Kab (or any) deal gets done when you are the #1 seed playing great still...
Boston can afford kaberle this year, that's true, but you said it yourself, your starting goalies are free agents this summer, and two of your key young players are up as well. If you want to keep all three next year, (Thomas, Kessel, and krejci) you can't afford to bring in kabby and his 4.25 cap hit next year.
