Montreal makes offer for Kaberle

As per Dallas Dave's twitter.

Quote:
#Habs shopping Andrei Kostitsyn for a defencemen. Unconfirmed rumors that they've offered Kostitsyn + Weber for Kaberle, still checking that
I don't know how reliable Dave is, but it's speculation on his part. Wonder how everyone thinks this offer is, if indeed Gauthier has offered those two for Kaberle.

Thought I'd share my two cents, I have a feeling that Kaberle is goner this season. Yes, I know this is year 3 or 4 of the circus surrounding him, but with the recent comments made by Burke hinting that he's not looking to sign Kaberle next summer, I think Kaberle will realize its time for a change, and it will be nice if he could get a head start at a place of his choice.

Won't be happy if Kaberle is gone. He's a rare commodity that we can choose to retain even during a rebuild, but what can you do.

He'll be much, much more appreciated if he goes to another team, a team built to compete right now.

If he is indeed gone, Montreal would be the last place I'd want him traded, but if those two are what Gauthier offers, I'd at least be intrigued.

AK has tons of talent, and could be one of those players who benefits from having a change of scenery. I would definitely give him a chance on the Leafs, and Weber is projecting to be a solid defenseman, possibly even a top 4.

Discuss.

I doubt Burke goes for AK, personally.

No offense but AK is better than any single offensive player on that team. Grabovski withstanding.

AK plays in a very confined and defensive system. He could potentially explode point wise in a more open leafs system.

I'm a Habs fan and all I have to say to the above is:

Ha-ha!

If that happens I will personally kick PGs ***.

He said himself he hates the idea of rentals especially for roster players. We dont need him now and we can get him for nothing in the offseason.

No thank you. Especially not for a Top 6 forward and someone who is doing what his job would be now. Tell me if this is a good situation (pending we resign Kaberle)

Subban - Markov
Kaberle - Wiz
Gorges - Hammer

Arguably 5 Offensive Defensemen. TERRIBLE idea.

Oh, because AK is worse than who? Grabnutski? MacArthur? Come on. AK has more skill than Kessel, and plays a better two way game when he is on. And he has size.

No way PG is that stupid.

Montreal already has enough mobility. It would be a dumb thing to do.

Dallas Dave is not too bad. He's pretty good.

But this offer makes no sense for either side.

You replace Wiz with Spacek and it does not look so bad anymore. I don't see why we should keep James anyhow.

I doubt MTL would sign both Markov and Kaberle if given the chance. I could be wrong though.

Montreal doesn't have any of those assets to offer up except for Gomez, but he makes too much money for us to accomodate without sending both Lupul and Komisarek the other way.

Both Kulemin and Grabovski utilize their higher talent levels more so than Kostitsyn, who has a 10 cent head.

You won't have this for a UFA Kaberle

Good point. Anything can be offered, but will he waive is the question.
I have to believe he'd want to see the playoffs this year. He can always go back with Toronto in the off season.

I would take that offer. Don't think we could get more than that for a rental. Plus it gives us another top 6 forward and another good d prospect.

Sure. Rather have pacioretty for obvious reasons but that offer is fine. Kaberle is a rental.

there are personal reasons that havnt been widely publicized that would make this a really bad time for tomas to leave toronto.
