Kaberle is not at the Gomez level of uselessness. Anybody who says that is out to lunch. Kaberle still possess decent vision. Where he gets in trouble is in front of the crease, where he allows people to stand in prime scoring areas and tries these weak stick checks to get the puck away. The habs need more crease clearing type d-men, and Kaberle certainly does not help in that regard.

Does Kaberle still have something to offer? He's not the player he was with toronto a few years ago, but he can still be useful on certain teams, but I dont think he's a great fit in Montreal at all. The thought of diaz/kaberle, or weber/kaberle trying to play in the defensive zone is a nightmare... we've seen that already.

Remember, the only reason kaberle was brought in was because the PP was awful and PG was desperate to get results and squeak into the playoffs. Desperation can lead to strange and risky moves.
