What have Kaberle, McCabe, and the other cast of rental dmen done the past couple years in the playoffs? Oh wait, they haven't played in the playoffs either.

Let the kids play, lets see what we have.
All 4 of those guys are not all playing right now. One is sitting. Right now that is MDZ. So dont act like ALL of them are playing and would be getting the short end of the stick if they brought in a rental defenseman. Your not "scrapping" anyone just because you bring in a offensive defenseman to help this team. He replaces just one guy. Maybe its not even one of those guys. Maybe its eminger. And gilroy is 26 years old. I like his play right now but he hasnt been anything special. So whats wrong with replacing him. Dont confuse yourself with this illusion that we MUST let the youth play. Its not like bringing in a Kaberle would throw us off course. In all likelihood he is just replacing gilroy or eminger. If he costs too much then you dont make the trade. Two of sauer, mcD, and mdz will stay on the roster. Maybe we send McD back down. You're being overly dramatic about the youth movement.

And your second statement is just stupid. Sorry, it is. They havent been in the playoffs because they have been on CRAP teams. Just a poor argument on your part. Dont just spit stuff out to make your case when they are not sensible. Kaberle's stats are solid. Be ignorant if you must. That is a guy who will make the team much better, hands down.
