I hate the type of reasoning. So because the leafs screwed the pooch on Komisarek, its okay that Montreal screwed the pooch with Kaberle. It doesnt mean you want either on your team at 4 million, its that simple.
also, in terms relative to the rest of the league, Montreals PP rank actually dropped a few notches after Kaberle was acquired. So really, the rest of the league improved more than Montreal did over the course of the rest of the year.
Fact is Montreal finished the worst they have in how many years. I would say there were more players who "contributed" to the failure of this team then any positives they brought. Kaberle along with guys like Gomez, Bourque, Cammalleri and Kostitsyn when he was here, Campoli etc etc. Even the faithful Captain was nothing short of mediocre this year.
