I sincerely hope this is a joke. A 32, soon to be 33 year old PMD. If Kaberle was 27 or 28, then it would be an absolutely understandable starting point and I do mean starting point. Kaberle of 5 years ago I would easily be willing to give up a prospect like Kreider + Del Zotto and so on. But sorry, to ask for a prospect I am assuming you know little about and just know hes high on our list for a pending UFA is lunacy.

I wouldnt even part with Del Zotto for Kaberle and Im not that big of a fan of Del Zotto any more.

Id would only do this deal IF and ONLY IF he is guaranteed to re-sign. Something like Valenteko+Grachev+2nd? Young D + Young forward + pick. Wolski essentially kicks Grachev down our depth chart a bit and we do have a plethora of young defenseman.

And before any TO fans say Valentenko is junk, he nearly made the team out of camp this year and was surprised McD got the call up instead of him.
