Although he doesn't shoot on the PP, at 5 vs 5 he's really good at opening shooting lanes and putting the puck to the net. He plays a puck possession game which we badly missed last year.

Kaberle won't make or break this team, I agree. But if the reports are true and he's in good shape, he's a solid addition to the club.
It is his lack of any physicality and his lack of effectiveness in his own zone that stirs everyone's pot. That and his incredibly short stick.

No doubt, he has poise with the puck.
