One way or another--whether Kaberle or not--it makes sense to bring in another d-man if only as an insurance policy against injury. Dependent on experience etc. that can cover a wide range and can be expensive or not so expensive in terms of assets given up.
The whole thing would be simpler if MDZ had taken a step forward instead of a step back this year. He's the one significant NHL roster player for us who didn't step up. Of course he's still very young.
I'm not sure that the Rangers are tough enough up front and definitely don't think they're tough enough on the blueline. That toughness might come in time with the group we have though.
Some of the reasons Kaberle comes up--there just doesn't seem may options available for a puck moving d-man who you can walk away from next year if you find yourself cash strapped signing your own RFA's. You'd almost have to envision that happening so you really don't want to overpay for him--and the cost is likely to be prohibitive. I'm not sure who else I'd be looking at--I'm less a fan of McCabe or Jovanovski.
