You don't give up a current top line player and a potential future top line player for a potential future top line player with a slightly greater likelyhood of being a franchise player.

With Van Riemsdyk, if he's alone you're trading Top Line Player for Top Line Potential.... there is a SIGNIFICANT difference between the two.
Honestly, if you expect JVR + our 1st for Kaberle (or even just JVR straight up for Kabs) then go ahead and just keep Kaberle, miss the playoffs again next season and we'll keep JVR and whomever we get in the first with our 21st overall pick and have fun watching the playoffs for years to come with no less of a chance at the cup with JVR in the lineup as opposed to just 2 years of Kaberle.
