TBH I can see both sides of it. Player vs Player, The Habs stole this one for sure.

If it turns out that Kaberle can still put up 45ish points a year and be a decent 4-5 guy in the line up. Again, MTL wins and the cap hit is fair.

My problem is the salary cap. They must have known that Campoli wouild be back soon, why rush to make this deal. Why not let Campoli have 10 games to see how it goes before you lock yourself in for 3 years for Kaberle??

They have some RFAs and at least 1 UFA that must be resigned at almost any cost. Price, Subban, Gorges and maybe AK.

4.25 is fair for Kaberle IMO, but NOT if it might cost you one of the guys I mentioned above.
