If Tomas Kaberle is traded to Montreal, it is because he has agreed to discuss a contract extension. It does make sense if PG has decided to abandon Markov. Not because he is a bad player, but because he wants something more reliable. That said, I believe that the offer Dallas Dave reported was likely accurate. It strikes me as similar to the deal that the leafs made for Beauchemin. It could be that both deals were bandied about and being worked on, with the Anaheim deal being triggered first.

Based on the Leafs current roster situation, I would say that the likely deal would now be Kaberle for Weber and a 1st round pick. There are too many things pointing away from the Leafs bringing in Kostitsyn. That strikes me as the kind of return the Leafs can expect for Kaberle.
