Do Leafs already have linemate for Kessel?

Didn't see anything posted here, so here it is:

Quote:
Matt Stajan proved adequate as a play-making centre last season, leading the Leafs in assists with 40 [Savard had 63 with the Bruins]. But, that number likely represents the high end for Stajan, whose durability is more impressive than his offensive skill. Mikhail Grabovski showed he can be a dynamic talent, but he doesnít have the patience and calmness required to abet a speedy winger. John Mitchellís numbers improved with added responsibility toward the end of the season, but no person will credibly speak of Mitchell and Savard in the same sentence. Tyler Bozak is reputed by many scouts to possess the ice vision and composure that may ultimately mesh with a scoring line-mate, but he is a complete unknown at the NHL level.

So, where does the hockey club turn to avail itself of Kesselís burning speed and ability to find open areas on the ice? The answer, though unconventional, may be found in the traffic jam on the blue line, where the Leafsí indisputably best playmaker wears No. 15.

Thatís right, Tomas Kaberle.

Is it just me, or has he seemed to push this idea for the past few seasons? I get where he's coming from, but our team is much better off with Kaberle on the point. White is a solid, but not spectacular PMD, and MVR is one hit away from not knowing what decade he's in.
