Well, if the odds aren't in his favour, I don't think the odds-maker in question has done his best work.
He didn't make the Boston PP better, and he hasn't been terribly great in Carolina.
...but what do those teams have to do with our situation? Nothing. The problem with Kabs in Boston was he didn't have a finisher. Someone he could pass to that would result in "pass-bang-goal." That's all montreal has right now. Shooters. Cammi's probably one of the best finishers on the right wing with his one timer. We've got Kostitsyn who not only has a wicked shot, but is also a very good distributor. We've got Subban who's got an absolute rocket. We've got people to crash the net etc. So, the situations are different.
Kaberle passes, and we've got all kinds of guys to pass to.
I'm willing to say that this trade actually has much better odds than most people think.
