This. Kaberle comes off the books at the end of next season anyway, and with his reputation as a points producer & PP specialist, he could be prime trade bait next year with his expiring contract. Not saying we'd get much out of him, but we oughta get something.

Bourque has the longer term deal and is essentially a junk player who's been declining for a while. He's also got a partial no-trade clause in his deal that could complicate moving him (Kaberle doesn't). Sure he shows flashes of potential now & then .. reminds me of Chad Kilger that way. Shoulda coulda woulda .. didn't.

Gomez & Bourque are the no-brainer buyouts.
