As for Kaberle, he's the weak link, but if the Habs have any hope in trading him they need to play him. If Subban ever signs, Weber's chances of cracking a healthy line-up go to 0. With the guys in the pipeline, he risks getting lost in the shuffle. Its probably best for all parties to move him and get some return, likely in a pick, developing prospect or a forward in a similar position. Ultimately though it will likely be less about return and more to do with asset management (not that they'll just give him away).
Well said my good man... well said!
