Just my opinion tho.
Biggs could be the X factor here, I think he could end up being a tremendous top nine PF from what I've seen of him thus far this year. If Biggs develops into that, it ends up being a tremendous deal for you guys.
Plus, you got Liles indirectly from the deal as well, so thats an added bonus.
As a Bruins fan tho, I still make the deal 10 times out of 10, Kaberle had 11 points in the POs and althought didnt exactly "resurrect" our anemic PP, he played well enough.
I don't think anyone is particularly disappointing in that deal. Bruins won the cup, Leafs replaced Kaberle (Liles) and restocked the cupboard (Colborne/Biggs). Colborne looking like a bit of a lost cause, but Biggs is awesome.
