So, if you're basing a return for Ribiero on the Kaberle deal, then the most you're likely to get is a project prospect and a 2nd round pick in this summer's draft.

I can't realistically see Toronto being in the mix for Ribiero right now, given how well they've been playing. They won't want to "rock the boat" unless it becomes absolutely necessary to do so.

If they have any interest in Ribiero, they'll most likely wait until he becomes a UFA this summer. But, if they do try to trade for him, then expect Grabovski to be going the other way.
In return, Toronto will get Boston's first round pick, prospect Joe Colborne and a conditional draft pick. According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, Toronto will get Boston's 2012 second-round selection if the Bruins make the Stanley Cup Final this year or re-sign Kaberle after this season.
