I still don't understand why we haven't dressed Kaberle in a while.

In the Greg Pateryn recalled thread I was one of the only people who said I still don't understand why we don't play Kaberle as the 6th D-man and utilize him on the PP. He's not great but when paired with Boullion he can be effective.

I'm all for the kids and giving them a shot but at the same time I consistently see Gorges - Boullion on the 2nd unit PP and it drives me crazy. If we had Kaberle up we could see a pairing of Kaberle - Emelin and would greatly increase our PP who (as of late) hasn't been delivering. I'd even be willing to double shift PK every now and then and let Kaberle feed the one-timer.

I love Beaulieu as a prospect (as do I with Tinordi) so I'm okay with getting him a few games here and there but I feel like at this point Kaberle has more to offer. Outside of his cap-hit he's still a serviceable NHL d-man.
