It's speculation on Dregers part anyway, and one based off stale information. Seidenberg made Wideman expendable, and Boston has the same defense (except improved) that they've had for a couple years now. There is no hole created y the removal of Wideman.

I could see a Savard to Toronto deal next season (at which point Kaberle's contract will have expired), this season it's hard to imagine.
Kaberle would have to be signed, obviously.

And I think Chiarelli will be more concerned with building his team into a winner, rather than where our pick will be. He's already got Seguin out of it, and even Savard won't take next year's higher than 15-20 max.
