I'd rather move Kaberle even if means retaining a bit of salary for next season (and only next season). The compliance buyouts can be used this summer AND next, so I'd rather keep it just in case. If Molson is willing to spend, I think it could be used creatively to improve the team rather than just get rid of a player. I think having a buyout in hand would allow more flexibility when it comes to trades. The Habs won't have significant cap space until the summer of '14 anyway, so the dead cap space next year doesn't bother me.
