Kool aid is flowing strong in this thread...

Kaberle "underrated" ?

Not to anyone whose actually been watching him play.

He's a 4.25m$ veteran dman who 4 consecutive NHL coaches used as minimally as they could at ES.

Does he have skill, absolutely, so does Gomez...

But he's clearly changed something in his approach to the game which has significantly reduced his effectiveness. Maybe he looked in the mirror this summer and realizes he's pissing away what could easily be 3-5 more years of top 4 caliber play, or maybe he looks at his bank statement and guaranteed contract and smiles.

We will know soon enough once the season starts if he's committed to paying the price, but his recent body of work suggests otherwise, and that does not make him " underrated"
