I liked Spacek, but keep in mind Kaberle has had a rough year in Carolina.. but before that he is an easy top three d-man. Usually we give up high picks for a player like this (Schneider, Wiz... okay okay those guys are UFA's and Kaberle isn't).. this time it was an older defenceman.. If Kaberle can quarterback the powerplay, we'll be laughing. This guy has been a world class defenceman for 85% of his career. You think guys like Cammy and Pleks aren't going to be pumped that they have him threading the needle now? Seriously, I hated his guts when he was a Leaf.. but remember how much he would torch us? Kaberle is a smooth, cerebral player. He'll be a good fit.

If we had signed Kaberle in the summer, would anyone be complaining? Doubt it. Give the guy a fresh slate and a chance and we'll see what happens. He's basically a better, younger, less brittle Spacek. So let's see what happens.
