I hope that is the case and there is no offer to Gilroy, but we will have to wait and see. I really prefer MDZ starts in Hartford, i think a pairing of Erixon-MDZ has nightmare written all over it, I want a stay at home d-man with Erixon to allow him to pinch and feel comfortable. Valentenko should be that guy IMO, lets hope they both earn their spots in camp.

That's the biggest factor if you ask me.

He's on the other side of 30, (33, I believe) and was EVEN LESS IMPRESSIVE in Boston than he was in Toronto. To me, he's another "Big Fish, Small Pond" type player. Javier Vasquez 3.0 for any Yankee fans on here.

I've always been a huge fan of Kaberle. But his time in Boston can be described in three words: underachieving and disappointing. Pass.

Rangers need to view players like that as a deadline add if they finish top 4 in the conference. Otherwise you get Redden 2.0

I hope so as well.

If he can play in his "man" body in the NHL like he did when he went back an dominated his final year in junior in his "young adult" body, we could be not only be a great defensive team but a nasty defensive team in the next couple years.

Tomas "Toronto's Revenge" Kaberle? The guy the Maple Leafs used to punk the Bruins and get some payback?

The guy that created horrific turnovers to avoid taking a hit IN THE CUP FINALS?

Kaberle, the worst defenseman on the Bruins?

No way, no how. He's Boston's problem not ours.

I wouldn't mind a short term contract. He is still one of the top puck movers in the game.

no thank you. he has been pretty bad. especially this season, he got a lot of PP assists from touching the puck instead of making plays. deceiving numbers really.

I would like to see next season

Staal, Girardi, McD, Sauer, MDZ, Erixon, Valentenko
Valentenko is at a point where even if he only plays 41 games in the season, it will be better than playing in Hartford. He's pretty much maxed out what he can learn at that level. He'll still learn but I believe his growth rate will be higher in the big leagues.

Kaberle signing will also mean MDZ has little chance of making the team IMO

Sather said the same thing about Redden.

I wouldn't want Kaberle on this team if he played au gratis, forget about paying him.

While Kaberle is a talented player, hes getting up there in age and clearly on the downside of his career.

Perhaps most importantly, he has little to no compete level - reminds me of Wade Redden in that regard. He'd get eaten alive by the New York fanbase.

How about we let MDZ show what he's got before acquiring a similar veteran defenseman who will take up a ridiculous amount of cap space?

With the addition of Erixon and hopefully an improvement from Del Zotto, we should not have any problems on defense that require a massive overpayment to a UFA.

If MDZ fails and shows that he can't play in the NHL, which I doubt, then let's go for an offensive defenseman next off-season - it's not as if Kaberly is some sort of a great catch that will never again be available.

If we are to spend cap space on a UFA, it should be on a forward, not a defenseman.
