And you trade him about 20-33% into the season, when some teams are starting to realize they have PMD emergency, and you are sitting on a surplus PMD. You trade him for strong prospect value.

You surely dont trade him between season.
IMO Its a lot easier to deal a Kaberle contract in the summer when teams have space rather than during the season where rosters are already set.


That said, given the behavior of NHL GMs I'm sure someone is going to look at Kaberle as a top 30 scoring defenseman over his deficiencies. I think he'll be movable so long as your not asking for the moon in return.
