Its a decent deal, 4.25M for 2 years, isn't bad, specially since we have ton of cap space, and by the way the 4.25M is only 6.65% of a 64M cap.

Going into next year, what our D-core is another stay at home D-men, Jackman or Garrison should be signed if they make it to July 1st

Markov-Gorges

Jackman/Garrison-Subban

Kaberle-Emelin

Diaz/Weber

I think we will keep Kaberle for about a year/year and half, keep him and let Beaulieu play a year-year in half in the AHL, and simply when Beaulieu is ready, trade Kaberle and put Beauieu on the 3rd pair.

Also if you don't think Kaberle has value even at his contract, look at what the Devils gave up near the trade deadline for Marek Zidlicky, a guy very similar to Kaberle in terms of play, style and contract. The Wild got a 2nd and a prospct for Zidlicky, we could easily get the same if not more for Kaberle if we were to trade him.
