First, I agree with those saying it is premature to decide on that. We will have to see how both of them perform this season. One thing I feel strongly about is that Kaberle will have to be moved after this season as we will have to start integrating the new D wave currently in Hamilton. With Markov back, even not 100% the player he was, and PK, Diaz and Beaulieu, Kaberle becomes redundant considering his softness and poor defensive play. While Bourke will have three more years left on his contract, his cap hit is more managable and he can be that depth scorer on the third line. I hope Kaberle plays well enough to be tradable with the deadline with only one year left on his contract. Marek Zidliky case should help as he was in a silmilar situation contractwise and even worse perfomance-wise but was aquired by the Devils at the deadline and helped them during the playoff run.
