This doesn't make much sense. Kaberle is much, much more valuable than either Phillips or Volchenkov, and is signed to a bargain contract. The Leafs are in a much deeper rebuild than the Sens, and need to build around young players - the sens have the luxury of an established young core.
Add to that the fact Schenn is a much higher rated prospect than Karlsson, and is playing in the NHL right now. He's arguably played better than either of those guys this year. That's really a bad example.
the ottawa organization is very high on karlsson, and as good as kaberle is, he's not worth the 1st and karlsson to us.
This makes a lot of sense though, and its probably true.
