Leafs fans may be confused by this, because you all thought Moore was amazing, but the majority of the league (except the Sabres) knew that he wasn't worth crap.

So, the conversation went -> Harding -> Kaberle -> Zidlicky. Not the other way around.

There are plenty of other teams interested in Harding.
So, considering that Backstrom was resigned, Minnesota isn't trying to trade away their RFA back-up goaltender?

Burke has said explicitly that he feels no need to trade Kaberle. If the right deal comes along, sure... but I would be VERY surprised if he was using Kaberle to find a young unproven goalie.
