I do not really understand the "it will take a 1st, top prospect and good youngster to get Kaberle" train of thought anymore.

Two trade deadlines ago, Toronto apparently had a deal in place of Kaberle for Carter and a 1st. So basically they were trading Kaberle for a later 1st and a good youngster (Carter was still all potential at that point).

Now, if he is dealt in the offseason, he will be around for 2 seasons and playoffs. At the time of the Carter trade, he would have been around for 3 seasons and 4 playoffs.

However now he is worth more then he was two trade deadlines ago?

I would say the best deal Toronto would get for Kaberle would be a 1st and a good (but not top) prospect, or a 1st and a good youngster (2nd liner). If the 1st is in the 12-18 or so range, then the quality of the player/prospect will be lessened (and the flipside, if it is one of the last picks of the round then the player/prospect would be a 1st line potential type player)
