I don't dislike Kaberle as much as many here, but the choice to acquire him shows that management was still buying into the false hope of immediate gratification. We were terrible and going nowhere, and our response was to add an expensive player to make the euthanasia easier. Instead, Spacek -- who had value then -- could have gotten us something or become part of a package.
Why would his stock be sinking. If teams wanted him 2 weeks ago no reason they wouldn't want him now. If he has no value it's because teams fear his 4.25 mil 13-14 cap hit. If anythinmg his value will go up as teams get more desperate, heck Gomez and Campbell got traded with much worst contracts.

If Spacek had value then why did Carolina find no takers at the deadline despite shopping him?
