A. Wants to keep them both, to have a good depth for the playoff run.
B. Waits for the trade deadline to make is move.
C. Wants to keep Weber but unnable to trade Kaberle.
D. Wants to keep Kaberle, but the offers for Y.Weber are not good enough.
E. He has something else in mind and he wants to keep those assets to make a bigger move later.
F. Other option...
Kaberle is an underperforming veteran with an albatross contract. His value is to teams looking for veteran depth (which may even include the Montreal Canadiens) heading into the playoffs. At this point his play and his contract preclude us getting much value from him and if we continue on our path he's probably worth more to us as a periodic fill in than anything we'd get in return.
Weber is a mid-range prospect who has shown some promise but is not quite there yet. His value will be to teams selling at the deadline - teams who are trying to move older players and get value and youth back. The bottom line is he needs minutes. He can't get those minutes in the AHL without passing through waivers so he needs to be sent to a team that has room for him too. Ideally I'd like to upgrade one of our wingers or get some depth on the wings for him.
