A sign J-Bo is worth more than MON next 5 1st round DP's IMO. Those late 1st round DP's have about a 25-30% chance of any sort of NHL career, and probably a 3% chance of landing a player as good as J-Bo.
Kaberle is great and the contract is awesome...But he doesn't fit the needs of Montreal. They already have Markov who is very similar. Kubina is a much better fit for what Montreal needs right now (big, strong, physical, good defensivly and has a big shot).
