The problem right now is we have no offensive depth so we're pretty much better off keeping those guys than trading them for nothing and signing some garbage UFA's.
That's exactly it. Unless we can bring in somebody better, no point in dumping those 2 for nothing and then complaining they are doing well elswhere and we need a similar player. I would ahve been ok moving Kaberle if we got Jackman, Allen or Salvador, right now the UFA pool on defense is not deep and I don't want Carle at 5+ mil for 5 years.
