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.
Its def possible, but I really dont see Kaberle resulting in that kind of performance. Taking Sundin and McCabe out of the equation is what hurt his numbers the most. He's played internationally and at all-star games and shown he can play with the best. I think if he got put on a team with a real first line he would flourish.

Not easy for puck moving defensemen to get points when theres no one to move the puck to ...

If Boyle can get 2 first rounders and 2 prospects after coming off a serious injury missing a season I think Kaberle can pull down at least a 1rst rounder, 3rd rounder and prospect.
