To me, all star means, NHL end-of-the-season All Star team. That makes you among the 4 best dman in the league that season and is quite an accomplishment - an accomplishment Kaberle has never achieved, btw.
Yeah, well those "accomplishments" are severely flawed in the way they are chosen. But anyways, no he's not a top 4 dman, I don't even think he's top 10 or even top 15. He is largely overrated by the Leaf fanbase. His numbers are dipping every single year, and it seems his defensive capabilities are dipping as well, which is the most important aspect. However, he should garner quite a return considering his hype and contract.
