And don't forget people, Kaberle was never used properly in Toronto. He put up 67 points one year playing 1st pairing with Bryan McCabe, but was still -1 for the season.

When used properly (2000-2004), he was playing 2nd-pairing ES minutes, a +20, and partnered with a solid shutdown talent (what I project Smid to be for Schultz) - guys like Svehla and Yushkevich. He put up 40+ points a year during this run, the majority of which were ESP.

That is an excellent player to have on your 2nd pairing. It's basically a 1b pairing when it runs at that level of execution.
