I may get killed for saying this, but if either Weber or Diaz is traded....Kaberle may not be bought out. Next year he could be good to have around if Markov goes down or there are injuries. He hasn't played poorly since getting back into the lineup. Also, moving him wouldn't be as big of an issue as it is this year.

Obviously, if we sign a big ticket free agent then the writing is on the wall, but otherwise....I'm not sure.
