#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.
None intended. Toronto's needs are for an established top 6 centre, a big LW that could play opposite Kessel, an established top 4 puckmoving defencemen, and a #1 goaltender. 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.
