Just doing my part, I see where you're coming from too.

The point of that breakdown was to illustrate that we are better with Kaberle than without for this season. I don't believe moving him for a pick is something we should look to do (unless that pick is really good, of course)...rather I think we should hang onto him and compliance buyout in the summer. It'll cost Molson more $$$, but it'll make us a better team in the short-run and increase our spending capability in the long-run.

That assumes we don't get good offers for Kaberle - if we do, then by all means, trade him. But I'd rather keep him and buy him out than deal him for a 4th rounder.
