I think Kaberle is worth a mid-late 1st Round pick and a decent prospect... to a team that is up-and-coming and has tons of youngsters already. Like St Louis or Columbus potentially... since they both have young groups of forwards and solid goaltending. They both too have decent groups of defensemen... Columbus is big, strong and plays a very responsible game they don't really have a good puck mover. St Louis' D is younger, but still very serviceable with great youngsters like Johnson, Colaiacovo and Woywitka. Both teams had bad PP's this season, but made the playoffs anyways and then had bad PP's in the playoffs too. They could surely use a Dman like Kaberle to feed their skilled young forwards.
I'm pretty sure the Blues PP during the season was in the top 10 range.

Also, you'd have to take Jay McKee.
