The writer's opinion of Kaberle aside, I can't see much chance he waives the NT. Kaberle either re-signs or walks. His value shouldn't change dramatically during the season except he again would have to approve any destination making him tougher to move. If BB was committed to dealing him it would have happened.

It seems a little odd that BB wouldn't have discussed a new deal while the trade window was still open because the club had better leverage then. Perhaps the offers were so weak, maybe a very late 1st and a marginal prospect, that Burke was willing to risk losing any return to have at least a chance at putting together the best top 4possible. It will be interesting to see it play out.
