I would bet against any deals with the Leafs. Howson has tried several times to put a deal together with Burke. He tried to get Antropov around the time he got Vermette. Burke insisted on a first round pick and a roster player from Burke's list for Antropov. I'm told he tried to get Kaberle during two of the off-season windows in Kaberle's old contract. Once again Burke wanted much more than Howson was willing to send. I understand Burke wanted a similar return to the Carter trade for Kaberle. I had heard Brassard, a 1st and a 3rd.

Ain't happening. They don't work well together.
