Sorry, I should have read more careful,
But total agree on the summer vs trade deadline value of players like Kaberle.
That is why I think Rutherford biggest mistake with Kaberle wasn't actually signing Kaberle, but rather trading him too soon. It was reported that Kaberle came into camp in bad shape, and it took him a while to get back in to shape. Had Rutherford waited a bit for Kaberle to pick up his game again, he could have offered him to the Devils and got something around Nick Palmieri and a 2nd round pick instead of getting Spacek.
