and at that time, all we'll see from the usual suspects is complaints about "using hindsight" and "he just work out", as if giving up on a 23 year old dman who has done nothing but show clear signs of future potential, just so we could add another stop-gap aging, expensive vet to make up for poor offseason decisions.
but hey, maybe Kaberle steps in, reverts magically back to top-pairing form, and turns into a steal of a player @ 4.25M$, helping us transform into a contender almost over night... doesn't hurt to dream does it?
time will tell I guess.
I have as much confidence in Yanik Weber reaching top 4 status as I have in Matt D'Agostini being 1st line material.
You won't have to worry about your elaborate scenario.
