Thomas Kaberle

Just wondering, if any team would be interested to pick this player for nothing in exchange? 2 years contract at 4,250M$, could help on PP, could have value at the trade deadline next year. If horrible; can be buyout at the end of this season.

He as zero value unless mtl is willing to eat half is salary .. Even then I don't think he will catch much interest !! Probably more at the deadline u will find a dance partner but not now !! U need a team that as difficulty on the power play . I think kaberle will be find in a 5-6 dman but 1 pp I think this is we're he would be more efficient !

Real money is real, so the "out" of a $3M compliance buyout option may not be an acceptable risk for some teams. But if a team isn't too worried about that side of it, he's pretty low-risk on the ice. I don't see the Habs holding back any salary, though... the team is already looking at a tight budget for next year, and have the compliance buyout option of their own.

I'd rather keep him and use the compliance buyout on him than get a 3rd rounder, say, and hold onto $2M of his cap hit, for example. Habs are gonna need all of that cap space (/ can make better use of that extra cap space).

He seems to have slimmed down and can still move the puck and make passes. He hasn't avoided the corners so far the way he did last year either. I would think he's a reasonable bottom-pairing/PP player on many teams. Just that the Habs have those spots more than filled atm. And will likely need to free up his cap hit for next year. I don't think he's "awful" or anything, he can still play and make a minor contribution.

You wont need Kaberle because you will have Subban sooner than you expect.

Slight savings on the summer buyout. Therefore, if no other team offered me anything for Kaberle, I'd take this.

Komisarek coming back to Montreal would go over like a lead balloon with the fanbase. While you say you would do it, it would never happen.

I don't think the Leafs do this IMO.

We've got Gardiner and Liles so Kaberle is now a bit redundant.

Komisarek has been pretty darn good in the 2 games the guy has got a chance to play under Carlyle.

2-0 with him, 0-2 without him

I think he's still a buyout candidate, unless we can dump him for picks.

it wouldn't take too much. any prospect that can play a physical game and be defensively responsible (a 4th liner or 7th dman equivalanet)

It would happen (from the Habs' POV) if it was offered on June 14th, however. Only logical. But of course not right now, not today. I think both teams can dare to dream right up until the trade deadline passes of getting something slightly better than another buyout, though.

He might fetch something from a team like the Flyers/defensively thin team at the deadline, but nothing until then.

He is at best worth a six round pick. Terrible defensively and isn't the puck mover or point producer he once was. Isn't he like 40 too boot?

Does he have any skill left? He has to still be good on the PP.

Sure. You can even keep one if them or both.

Yeah, don't pair him with a Campoli type, say. But he is "adequate" defensively... he soft-touched things a bit too much last season, but isn't doing it that bad this year. He is savvy enough to position himself and use his stick well enough. You couldn't say defense is a "strength" or anything. But so far this year he's not a liability. He knows how to move the puck out.

Yes, Tomas.

I personally don't mind having him around. He's a vet who was once a top 15 d-man in the league and he's friend with Plekanec and Budaj.
