2nd Round 2011

From NYR
Evgeny Grachev
2nd Round 2011

From SJ
Joe Pavelski

I would prefer Grachev. But none of those deals really make Toronto an excellent team by any stretch of the imagination.
If PG traded LeBlanc and a 1st for Kaberle he would get fired.

I don't see Toronto getting any of those deals from those teams. I think his value tops out at a 1st or a 2nd plus a B prospect. He is after all a RENTAL player. No team will trade their 1st AND top prospect for a guy that may only stay 2-3 months. The only players that got that type of value in the cap world are guys like Hossa and Kovalchuk and both teams ended up regretting paying so much.

Not only that but Kaberle controls his destiny with the NTC. IF he waives it Burke may only have 2-3 teams to deal him to...if he gets a list of 5-6 teams only 2-3 may have the cap room and/or willingness to make a big offer.
