To NYI or Colorado
: Kaberle and the Leafs' 1st rounder (likely 7th overall)
: 1st round pick (either 1st or 2nd overall), and a prospect.
The Islanders can't tank every year, as it looks ridiculous on them. However, they probably have no stomach to give up the chance for Tavares. Colorado could be a playoff team next year if they dealt for Kaberle, and it would basically mean they downgrade from Hedman/Duchene to Schenn/Cowen, as well as a prospect (Nigel Williams for example).
Cue those geniuses who think Kaberle isn't even worth a fourth round pick....
Come on man, they wont trade away the 1st overall pick. Use your head.
