I don't think a non-playoff team would want him at the expense of a top 15 prospects in this years draft so your looking at something in between pick 15 and pick 30.

or say tb pick (2nd or 3rd pick) -- toronto for 8th pick and kaberle

thats how the leafs get in the top 5 in draft
Explain to me why a team like the Isles would trade down in this draft unless being totally overpaid. Kaberle and To`s 1st won`t get you the Isles pick. Not even close.Isles are in complete rebuild and they want another 30yo d-man thats a UFA in 2 years WHY?

if Toronto moves him at the draft, they will get a lot less for him than waiting till the deadline.
I'm not sure if his value will necessarily be lower, but you are right that there will be alot of teams that will be looking at the UFA options before deciding on the trade route.

If nobody bites on draft day, I could see a trade happening in the offseason once the big UFA's are gone... And the bargaining chip will be the 2010 first round pick. Sure, teams like Ottawa and Dallas might not be interested in trading their 2009 top 10 draft pick. But, there are a few teams like this that underperformed this year. And will be expecting to do MUCH better next year. They might be willing to play the odds and trade their 2010 1st rounder, hoping that their team, with the addition of Kaberle, could put them, at least, into the playoffs and a worse drafting position for next year. And Burke might be willing to take that risk too, depending on the team...

So, I could definitely see, after the UFAs are gone, a team like Buffalo, Ottawa, Florida, Dallas (and probably a few others) looking at their D, and thinking they are a good puck moving Dman away from moving up the standings into a playoff spot. So, in my opinion, they'll be willing to trade 2010 first round pick + good prospect (+ maybe a redundant younger roster player for Kaberle).

Which is expected to be a weak draft year (at least in comparison to the 2009 draft class).

Agreed... but, Burke might not have the choice. This year's 1st round picks are seemingly over-valued (at least on these boards), so he might not get a good package.

His choice might be Kaberle for 2009 1st round pick (15-20 overall)
OR
Kaberle for 2010 1st round pick (? overall) + good prospect

Unless Burke has his eye on someone specific in this year's draft, he might be willing to take the latter...

However, having said that, Burke will value 2009 picks > 2010 picks, not just because this year is supposed to be deeper, but because a 2009 pick will most likely play in the NHL earlier than a 2010 pick. This seems to be something Burke does value...

a Kas trade will be 1st+, and that pick will be below 15.

Using him to move up from 7-8 is interesting, but they wont get Tavares. It would (and i doubt it happens) be more like Kab + Tor 1st for #3-5 + something (top prospect, young roster player, etc..).

Toronto blew their chance at Tavares/Hedman by winning so dang much (i kid i kid)

his value is not what it was at the deadline.

id say his package will either be:

top prospect + 2nd

or

1st + mid prospect

Everybody's gaga over first rounders on the boards right now. I don't think Kaberle gets traded, but if he does it likely won't be for picks anyways.

If any team gives up a first-rounder for Kaberle, they're getting screwed. Just because he's the best player on a bottom-feeder doesn't mean he's automatically worth a first-rounder (and the number of Leafs homers who come around here won't change that). He's suspect defensively and his offense doesn't reconcile for that.

Further, it's a deep draft and the cap is lowering in coming years. Therefore, the value of a first-round pick (and even an early second) is higher than it has been in recent years.

So you think Kaberle isn't even worth a first round pick? That's laughable.

Conversely, just because he is on the Leafs doesn't mean he's not worth a first-rounder (and the number of Leafs haters who come around here won't change that).

But seriously, there is a chance we see his value this summer. If Burke decides to keep him, we'll never really know and all this speculation will be just that... speculation.

If the action potential threshold for Burke to move Kaberle is a first-rounder, expect to see him back next year. He's just not that good of a player.

Sure, you are entitled to that opinion... Doesn't make it the truth. And I don't think you'll find that the majority of people (Leafs fans or otherwise) will agree with you.
Heck, I would guess that the majority of people who make a living off of hockey (players, coaches, scouts) would also disagree with you.

honestly I wouldn't mind if Dallas took a look at Kaberle, but I'd prefer the Stars give up one of their high rank prospects and a solid roster player .. maybe something like Ivan Vishnevskiy and Trevor Daley for Tomas Kaberle


Brenden Morrow - Brad Richards - Fabian Brunnstrom
Steve Ott - Mike Ribeiro - Loui Eriksson
James Neal - Mike Modano - Jere Lehtinen
Brian Sutherby - Tom Wandell - Raymond Sawada

Tomas Kaberle - Nicklas Grossman
Sergei Zubov - Matt Niskanen
Mark Fistric - Stephane Robidas


oh yeah there's a championship calibur team

well I can dream can't I?

I think the Leafs will keep Kaberle.

I also think they will continue to have one of the worst defensive records in the league.

These two items are not unrelated.

Clearly you could get Jeff Carter and the Flyers 1st. Or at least that is what some leafs fans still believe

well for starters i dont see a top 10 pick being traded unless it is for another top 10 pick but just to move up

Kaberle will get a 1st + pretty good prospect but wont be a top 10 pick as those teams would rather get a top 10 prospects in this years deep draft

Kaberle is by no means a top defender in the league but I tend to find Kabby is either overrated by Leafs fans and very underrated by all others.

Kaberle is a tremendous top 4 dman who can log 25 mins a night, instantly improve your PP and transition game and give you 50+ points a season. If a team is looking for a puck mover in hs prime that will improve the PP then Kabby is your man.
A 1st and a team's 2nd or 3rd best prospect is a great return. I'm using the typical "Carle, Wishart, 1st" default and taking out the "Carle". Wishart was the Sharks 2nd (or maybe 3rd) best prospect, behind Couture (and maybe Petrecki), and a 1st went to Tampa for Boyle.

I think Kaberle can get a first-rounder, but I doubt it's anything higher than a 10th, for the reasons most often cited in this thread.

The Blues, for example, should be drafting between 13th and 16th, and I doubt very seriously they'd give up that pick for Kaberle.

That's just looking at the Blues' situation specifically, though, and there's nothing to suggest that another team also drafting in that same range -- your Nashvilles, Anaheims, Edmontons and Columbuses -- wouldn't be interested.
