'Cause all of them had their problems has well, yet were a pretty good asset on the PP. But somehow, Kaberle is underrated? Come on. He was not an asset in Boston, he was a liability. So Boston couldn't pay him? Why did we? And Boston don't have plenty of stars on D. And Rutherford calling him a mistake.
I will believe that we would need more a punishing defensive D than a guy like Kaberle. And one of my problems with him is exactly. Having him on board provides a lack of other types of D.
There are six defensemen on a team, let's not hold it against Kaberle that he isn't mean and 6'6" a la Chris Pronger in his prime.
Theoretically, with the six positions, you should be able to find players that complement each other.
