How did you get my home number, this was supposed to be unlisted!
Anyways, with regards to your question, too many people focus on the cap-hit and not the production. The Montreal Canadiens organization presumably figured that his cap hit would be manageable with the demotion of Gomez (and the cap rising another ~15%), his production (true worth) and with the possbility of being able to flip him over to another team. Kaberle's value plummeted over less than a year, he was traded for a king's ransom at last year's trade deadline and acquired by the Canadiens for almost literally nothing the following December. That could either mean his play regressed magnificently over an alarmingly short span of time (some call for Ponce de Leon? Haha!) or his value and play will surely pick up.
Time will tell, timmy, but I'm betting that he's going to get all better. Until then, enjoy summer vacation - I'm going to enjoy a cool dip right now!
