He certainly didn't help the power play but the Bruins transition game was so much better with Kaberle than without. Even though he was on the bottom pairing he gave us three defence pairs that could chip in some offence.

People were upset with Kaberle's preformance but I think what he brought to this team will be apparent if we don't sign him or someone like him.

I'm just fine with anything repeating itself after last season.

Wait, you mean the problem may have not been Kaberle, but rather the team not being able to get the puck into the zone?.

If so, then I completely agree with you. People blame him for too much when it's the unit as a whole that can't get the puck in.

Also, for whoever mentioned Brad Richards, I want nothing to do with him unless it's 6mil and under.

QFMFT.

Getting older, slower. No shot and predictable on PP as a result. Decent, but not great, transition guy. Doesn't possess a world-class skill set anymore.

Nowhere near worth north of $3 million.

Good luck, Kabs.

Thanks for not costing us the Cup, as I feared you would.

I love how this is worded. As if Kaberle is "testing the market". That makes it sound like it's his preference to leave.

It's more like "Boston Cuts Kaberle Loose"

If he truly played up to that hackneyed moniker, there'd be no discussion here about whether to keep him, no?

I agree with this.

I don't think the PP was entirely Kaberle's fault. The Bruins PP is so predictable, and had a great passer in Kaberle but not one player in a shooting position.

Kaberle did help the transition game. He got better as the playoffs went along and he like many other Dman made mistakes. He moved the puck very well and he made McQuaid look the best he ever has in Black n Gold.

I think on the open market Kaberle will get 4m+. i can see teams offering him 3 years 4.5m per.

Looks like it is time to re-sign Kaberle.

A couple thoughts:

1) I think Julien is a big factor in all this. It was obvious that he simply did not trust Kaberle's defensive ability and sheltered his minutes as a result. If you're Chiarelli, why would you spend big bucks on a guy your coach has little faith in?

2) This team seemed to do pretty well for most of the season before Kaberle arrived. While not ideal, I don't think it would be the end of the world if we didn't sign any UFA d-men and went with Kampfer as our PMD. He showed glimpses of being capable. If that fails miserably, then there's always the trade route.

3) With that said, my guess would be Chiarelli avoids dishing out a huge contract to the top tier of UFA defensemen and tries to find a bargain in someone like Stralman or Lepisto.

Problem is, if that's what Chiarelli will do we are better off to let Kampfer play and develop than wasting money on Lepisto

Adios Kaberle

Dreger:

Boston Bruins sent out an email this afternoon offering Tomas Kaberle's negotiating rights. Van did same for Ehrhoff and found a deal.

Pitkanen signing for only 4.5M will certainly help Chia's case, hopefully Kaberle will take a similar contract.

Perhaps but depth is never a bad thing. If Kampfer gets hurt, then who is our PMD? Bartkowski? Possibly but he looked out of place in the NHL last season. I'd rather worry about having too many competent D as opposed to too few.

I wonder what kind of money he wants and what Chia is offering?

Hopefully Chia can bag Wiz or someone similar July 1.

Yup, a mistake when you consider who is left there. Wisniewski or Kampfer is my guess for next season on the Bruins.

Personally I'd rather have Kaberle over Wiz, but would be OK with either. Rolling with Kampfer in that spot is a big step back IMO.

Maybe Chia is targeting someone via trade?

Also, I have a hard time believing that Ehrhoff is going to sign on the Island. They're pretty brutal.

If Kampfer is our PMD next season, our championship team got worse not better

Despite not being a great fit in Boston, Kaberle got a ring. My guess is that now that he has that next he probably wants to get as much money as he can and isn't giving Boston a hometown discount because he doesn't have a strong tie to Boston.

He'll test the market and people will be surpirsed what some GM gives him.

That, or Claude doesn't want him back. It's a very real possibility that Claude wasn't a big fan, even by looking at just his TOI it was pretty apparent that CJ didn't have much trust in him and the coach does get a say in these things

They haven't even had a chance to bat any eyelashes yet, let's see what happens throughout the summer first.

If Kampfer fills that void, the team has a LOT of $$$ to spend on a forward...

Still hoping for Wiz but still fine with Kampfer if thats the route they take. Always been a fan of his game.
