Kaberle to Penguins for Eric Tangradi

I'm tired of the stupid Kaberle proposals, so i'm adding my own stupid one. Burke drafted Tangradi in Anaheim, so he'll be high on him.

Because the Pens are shopping for an offensive defenceman...

The Penguins already have a better version of Kaberle and two younger, cheaper versions of Kaberle.

They do not want or need him in any way. Not for Staal, Tangradi, or really anything at all since he would be a bad allocation of cap dollars.

Crosby + 1st + Rights to Malkin (he went to KHL) for Schenn or Kadri

The Leafs would say no, and the Pens dont need to go out and pick up an OFD.

Maybe if Kaberle were a shutdown defender or good winger on a nice contract for a few years.

We certainly aren't trading our best winger prospect (something we need) for something we don't need, at a price we can't afford.

I don't care if you change that to Ben Hanowski...there is no need for Kaberle in Pittsburgh and his cap hit makes him even more redundant.

Trading for Kaberle might make sense for the Penguins if they don't think they will retain Gonchar.

Basically a throw-in for Ryan Whitney, flipped for Tomas Kaberle straight up? NO.

PIT fans also have made it clear their d-corps is fine.

NO.

Tangradi was definitely not a throw in..

but I agree with the rest.

Kaberle is far better than any defenseman on the pens not named Gonchar. Letang and whoever else you are referring to (Goligoski?) will never be close to the player Kaberle is .

Oh yeah and Kaberle's contract is very cap friendly.

He is owed 4.25 a year through next season. The Leafs would be stupid to take only Tangradi for him and the Pens would be a much, much better team with him.

So substituting one of Goligoski/McKee/Eaton/Skoula for Kaberle is redundant?

I mean all the Kaberle stuff has been annoying enough..I wonder why I even still visit those threads..

not that he is not a great player, but not exactly what we need..

btw. I think some pen fans are overreacting.

if it was:

Goligoski
Fedotenko (TO could get at least a 3rd for him from other teams I guess)
2nd

for him we might have to do it, but not at the coast of our top prospect..

You'd give up Goligoski and a 2nd, but not Tangradi?

You're off man

Kaberle could replace Goligoski. Remeber, Kaberle is only 31, I would thinkt that that means 5+years from a very good d-man!!

I really liked Goligoski at the beginning of the season, but he does nothing atm...

he is just pretty soft, small. It doesn't help when you can't check because of your body, and can't pock check because you have no range. he skates like the wind and has a nice shot, but we should only play 1 left handed d-man on the pp..so he is kind of redundant.

the question is, what would that mean for Gonchar, but we could afford to lose him via free agency then IMO, and go for another really good defensive d-man.

Tangradi on the other hand could become an offensive horse for years to come, and he will have only a cap hit of ~850 000, which could help us bigtime for 3 years...

he was also 2nd on scoring behind Tavares in "their" league last year, I think...so I'm pretty high on that guy..

no, too much salary to toronto, plus a rebuilding team does not trade prospects.

i hope you realize this is sarcasm
