Look at what guys got at the past few trade deadline to see what Kaberle would get. Do we all too soon forget that guys like Tkachuk got a 1rst, 2nd, 3rd and roster player? Obvious overpayment but still.

the thing abour Kaberle is that his performance has declined since the daily trade rumours started a couple of years ago. He is still very good but he may not be elite.

Worse, his play may further decline if he gets into a team situation he doesn't like. A comparable is Pitkanen who couldn't handle the intense scrutiny and fan pressure in Philly and Edmonton but is doing very well Carolina. If Carolina wants to trade him, about 1/2 of the GM's will not even look at him if their situations are similar to Philly and Edmonton.

Kaberle seems to be affected by all the news stories. If Burke could move him to a non traditional market, then he might absolutley flourish.
