The reality is that Kaberle problably isn't going to get traded, and even if he is, the only team that MIGHT be in a position to give up enough for him without a contracct extension is the Boston Bruins.
Clowe has real and significant value. Mitchell does not. Poni and Frolov meet the needs of a top 6 LW, that doesn't mean they can or will be signed by Burke. Also, both are soft. There are no top 6 power forwards available on the market. That isn't too say that Toronto should make the deal, but you will not get a first line center for him, unless Boston is very foolish. If Toronto can pull that off, they absolutely should.

As for your point of stating what you merely inform teams' fans what it would take to get him, your 'demands' are entirely unrealistic. The only team that might give up a first line player is Boston, all your other proposals aren't even close. Let's say hypothetically (and I admit this is unlikely) Kaberle doesn't want re-sign because he feels the team doesn't want him, and also assume Boston is unwilling to move Savard for him, what are your other options?
