He does seem a bit quicker to the puck and less afraid. It hasn't exactly added any huge improvement to his game, though. But he's also getting far fewer minutes and somebody else took over the PP very effectively. I don't think he really hurts us as a #6/7/8 defenseman.

But of course, at the same time, we know now that we're definitely buying him out in the off-season, if he remains on the team that long. So if there's any offer on him at all out there at any point before the trade deadline, I'd say take it. I wouldn't wait until the deadline to maximize return either. I'm not sure he'll play too much before then to improve his value. So take the first offer that comes along and run with it.
Agreed but I doubt we would get a draft choice, other than maybe a 7th rounder. We would likely have take some salary back but if it was only a one year contract or a lower salary than Kaberle, it would make financial sense.
