Leafs fans thought of Kaberle to Phaneuf passes, Bruins thought of Kaberle to Chara passes. In reality, it simply isn't that easy!
agreed, in fact phaneuf has been much better since kaberle left.

i think it would be a pretty good fit, he would play well in that system. Still a defence first team, but not as physical as Boston, there is more skill in New Jersey and less crash and bang hockey

Thanks for the awesome and respectful replies!

His good friend Patrik Elias has stated that he would like Kaberle on the Devils. Maybe he talks to him. After this next season we have a ton of cap space.

I just really feel Kaberle can bring to NJ what we need.

We sign him to a 1 yr 4.5 mill contract and trade him at the deadline to a contender for a 1st rounder, maybe SJ, NJ or Boston bites again.

Yup, he'd be a great fit more so than Boston.

^ this. I think Kabby would actually be at his best on a team like the Devils or Red Wings.

I don't think he's a great fit in Boston, especially with Julien behind the bench.

Kaberle working with Stevens and Robinson would be awesome.

What price do you guys think he is looking for?

Kaberle would be a good fit with us, where he belongs, to hell with the other teams. Come back home Thomas.

Plus, in Boston they don't have many big guns.

If he came to New Jersey, he could be passing to Kovalchuk on the point of the PP.

And he is so good at the transitional game. The opponent comes in attacking, Kaberle makes a simple play and brings his team on the offensive attack. It's a lot of little things he does right.
The problem with this is Kabs doesn't shoot, the PK would just overplay IK.

He is one of the best at the transitional game and would be great help to any team.

4 or 5 years, For about 5 to 5.5 million.

He's 33 now and he's going to be looking for that last big contract.

No more DET than anyone else would help him strive, taking over Rafalski's responsibilities.

One thing I know for certain:

New Jersey sorely lacks a puckmover of Tomas Kaberle's caliber.

Apparently he twittered (whatever that is ) today that he wants to stay in boston and Chia said in his end of year press that he really likes him and wants to keep him, so I'd say its a safe bet he's staying in boston. But ya never know I suppose. it he wants more then 8M/2yrs (4M a year) I doubt he stays.

That is just not true. Phaneuf's first big game was against Anaheim Jan 20th. At that point, he was back.

He returned from injury December 9th and got 4 points in 18 games up until Jan 20th.

He got 1 point vs Anaheim and added 21 points in 37 games.

Kaberle was traded Feb 18th.

Phaneuf scored 7 points in 13 games with Kaberle, after the Anaheim game.

Phaneuf scored 15 points in 24 games after Kaberle left.
